Adding weldment data to cut list properties of weldments


New member
I have various weldments in a part and I would like to insert the path name of the weldment profile used into that weldments cut list properties. I can loop through all the features and I can get the path name of the profile in the weldment feature but how do I "transfer" the path name to the appropriate cut list item? Do I have to do another nested loop that runs only on the cut list folder and do a name compare between the feature and the cut list item name in order to perform my "match"? Or is there a way within the cut list folder to find the parent feature that generated the cut list item? If I can find the parent feature from within the cut list folder, then I can get the path name easily.
