Today i’m working on trying to eliminate the need to manually input a dimension on the end of a common component definition which I regularly use on projects.
The component in question is an equal angle brace which length varies depending on location and project. The component is then named with the c/c dimension as shown. I will then generate report on all required braces and copy the equal angle definitions into a solidworks table for our fabricator to work from.
My question relating to this brace is as so - Is there a way to automatically drive the dimension required at the end of the component definition from the changing dimension within the model? i.e when I change the brace length - thus changing the c/c dimension - can the definition also change with this?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
