Applying constraints to profiles

Good afternoon,


We're exploring the use of constraints in ASD.


After we create some 0-layer geometry for a simple steel frame, we apply geometric and dimensional constraints.  If you update a dimension, the geometry does too.  Works good.  Then we create structural HSS profiles from the geometry.  When we update the dimension, the profile length does not update to the new dimensional value.


Is there a setting that associates profile member lengths to constrained geometry?


Much appreciated!

Such functionality is not supported in ASD, sorry.
