I am working on a gearbox design that requires multiple iterations on the shaft dimensins and other parts, so linking the dimiensinos to a spreadsheet would make this easier. However, I'm using the design accelerator for the shaft and other components and I cannot find any information on how to connect the dimensions I enter in that design accelerator to a speadsheet.
I know how to link to a spreadsheet for a regular component, but haven't used that much.
Is what I'm trying to do at all possible?
Thanks for your time.
Solved! Go to Solution.
after looking into it some more I managed to put in parameters into the design accelerator dimension boxes. However, I cannot access the linked parameters from there. It works fine with a regular sketch, but the accelerator only lists user and model parameters.
Does anyone know how I can change that?
In case someone runs into the same problem sometime, here is the solution to my problem (got help from someone else).
Autodesk seems to have forgotten to integrate the ability to use linked variables in the design accelerator. I got around this by creating a user variable and setting it to be equal to the corresponding linked variable.
