If Parameter("HEIGHT")=152.4

Parameter("UC_PROFILE")="152.4"
EndIf

** Use "End IF', not "ENDIF"

Pasting into IE erased the space.

Cheers,

My text in the 'UC_designation' Parameter contains 'x's. E.g - 152.x152x23

Inventor recognises this as an equation, therefor the rule doesnt work. Is there any way around this without replacing the 'x's?

Cheers,

when you created the "UC_PROFILE" Parameter, did you create it as a text parameter?

If not, in the parameters dialogue, use the drop down in the bottom left which by default says "Add Numeric". Select "Add Text" instead.

Do you know if there is a way in which rules can be run automatically? E.g Everytime the part is updated or saved rather then having to press iTrigger

Cheers,

I'm not that knowledgeable about triggers I'm afraid, as I have only really been creating rules which I need to run on command, but have a look at this...
