Save and use "Multi-Value" dimension sets

Status: New Idea

Be able to save "Mult-Value" dimension sets in Part files and then choose which set you want to activate when that part is placed in an assembly.

This would mean you could place normal parts with different size options like you can place iParts.

 

This would be much faster than creating iParts. Many times you need an instance of a part with something a slightly different size to the original and this would be great.

It would be good if we could incorporate "Suppression" of features in this some how too?

The saved "Multi-Value" dimension sets could possibly be handled like "Design Views" and "Level of Details".

 

When creating the drawings a different "Multi-Value dimension set" could be activated. Then for example when taking a section through a cylindrical object, features that are not square to the section view (the section doesn't cut through them) could be rotated around the central axis to show up nicely in the section (show section going through them).
