Adding Custom Properties

To add custom properties:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • In the Cut list folder , right-click a Cut-List-Item, and select Properties.
    • To assign custom properties at the highest propagation level, right-click the Weldment feature.
  2. In the dialog box, on the Cut List Summary tab (or the Custom tab if you right-clicked the Weldment feature):
    1. Type or select a Property Name.
    2. Type text or a value in Value / Text Expression.
      When you define a cut list property that includes a single or double quotation mark (‘ or “), type an @ sign in front of the quotation mark to ensure that the expression evaluates correctly. For example: 2@" X 2@" X 1/4@". The @ sign also applies when referencing a Property Name that includes a quotation mark. For example, if you have a file property whose name is Length12”, you must add an @ sign in Value/Text Expression for that property.
    3. Press Enter.
  3. In the Link column, click the box to link the cut list item to the cut list folder or parent part.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 as necessary, then click OK.
    The custom property is added.
