Custom Properties in Weldment Cut Lists

Weldment cut lists include the item number (ITEM NO.) and quantity (QTY.) and cut list custom properties.

Custom properties for cut lists are different from custom properties at the document level. In weldment parts, properties are included with cut list items created from structural members with library feature part profiles:
  • Angle1
  • Angle2

Example: Using Length and Angle Custom Properties

To add custom properties to cut list items:

  1. In the part document, right-click a Cut-List-Item and select Properties.
  2. In the dialog box, on the Cut List Summary tab:
    1. Type or select a Property Name.
    2. Select a data Type.
    3. Type text or a value in Value / Text Expression and press Enter.
    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. 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.
