Hi Everyone,


                     I understand how to link a 3D.dwg with a 2D.dwg, but what I'm having trouble with now is linking the data,

is there anyway to create a table and link data directly from the .ipt to the .dwg that would update when I edited or revised the .ipt. I know that you can do this by exporting the parameters in an excel file then importing them to the .dwg but once I do that there isn't anyway to auto update the data.... I'm not sure that this made a lot of since, but I’ve done everything I can think of to get this to work and I’m stumped. If you have any suggestions or know how to do this I would owe you big

You can pull parameters into a text box by parameter name.

This will show the parameter value and update as the model updates.


Have a look at the help below


+ Format text
   + Model, Drawing, and Custom Properties
       Add Text Parameter
   + Parameters
       Add parameter
