How to create an attribute link in CATIA

By Mark Potrzebowski


This video shows CATIA users how to link a text value (parameter) that is created in a part and associate it to text in the drawing file. If the parameter changes in the part then it can be updated easily in the drawing. 

More information on this topic can be found in the Rand 3D Generative Drafting class.
