Swappable DCS

I’m trying to create a few DCs that can be swapped while maintaining the attributes of the DC currently in the model. I’ve gotten it to work using the “Current” function. I would like to be able to scale it and/or type in a length. Scaling it works great, however, if I input a length into Component Options dialog it clears the formula out of the LenX field. Is there some way to get around this? Thanks in advance!

So long as the definition saved as a component file has the current formula then it should not matter if the formula is overwritten in the project. The swap will still read the current value, in that you swap using the saved files not the project components

Thanks for the reply pcmoor.
Yes, you’re right! I guess I was overthinking (or underthinking) it.
Thanks for solving my already solved problem! :smile:
