Maintain WTPart attributes after CAD checkin

Hi,

 

We have CAD objects that associate with the corresponding WT part when we check in the CAD object. In the WT part we have additional parameters, such as "Provider". If I set the provider name on the WT part, without having the "Provider" parameter in the CAD part, this information is cleared from the WTpart next time I check out and check in the CAD object. This is not good. Is there a way to maintain the association without affecting certain WTpart specific parameters?

 

For example a bracket that is made by three different machine shops would have 3 different WTparts, with different "Provider" parameters, but use the same CAD object as the source. So if I update the CAD I don't want to go back in to the different WTparts to add the Providers again.

 

Thanks
