TIPS: Useful System Parameters in Pro/ENGINEER Drawing

Version: Pro/E Wildfire, Wildfire2.0, Wildfire3.0

To display a drawing label indicating the model’s useful information in Pro/ENGINEER, you will need to make use of some system parameters. The tables below list down the most commonly used system parameters in Pro/E Drawing.

Symbol ‘&’ is used as the syntax to display the system parameter in a note or text field. These system parameters are reserved in Pro/ENGINEER and you are not able to create a user defined parameter using the same name.


System Parameter Description (To Display)
Current sheet number
total number of sheets in the drawing
name of the drawing (.drw)
&model_name name of the model used for the drawing (.prt or .asm)
model type (for example, part, assembly, etc.)
&scale scale of the drawing (not view scale)
date on which the note was created
Model mass
&PRO_MP_VOLUME Model Volume

To display the user defined parameter value (tool > options), use & in a drawing note.
