>pART returns same as >NAME

Hi,

text variable >PART returns same as >NAME(designator).

As described in https://help.autodesk.com/view/fusion360/ENU/?guid=ECD-TEXT-VARIABLES >PART should return component name (21-0010 in my case).

Hi @silvio3105 ,

 

I hope you're doing well. >PART is actually the same as >NAME, it's not commonly used, usually limited to components like relays where on each individual symbol you want to know what component it belongs to.

If you want it to show the device name you have a couple of options.

1) Set value to OFF in the device editor. When you do this by default the value will be the device name. Main problem with this is that the value is no longer available to store 200. You can use a separate attribute to display the 200 or you can just hard code it in. Since it's your in-house part number hard coding the 200 might work.
2) You can create a different attribute to hold the in-house part number and then display that.

 

I would probably favor option 1.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

 

Best Regards,

I stick with custom variable >PN for custom part numbers.
But, why's there >NAME, >PART and >GATE?
Seems they return same thing.
I would like to see some variable that returns nomponent's name.
Thanks.

Hi @silvio3105 ,

 

I've logged this one as a feature request.

This image from the EAGLE manual makes the distinction between >PART, >GATE, >NAME clear
