User Parameters in Frame Generator Offsets

Status: New Idea
by Contributor julesgf on ‎01-19-2013 05:09 PM

User parameters can be entered into offset fields currently. However the value is converted to a fixed numerical and does not update the member location when the user parameter value is changed.

Fixing this would make a massive difference to my workflow.
It would in fact allow new ways of modelling, many simpler frames could be described with only 2 sketches on the origin planes.

I'm looking at the same issue.  I do see that editing the FG part by using "Edit with Frame Generator" and then hitting the apply button without making any edits moves the offset to the current value of the parameter. However, it would be nice not to have to do this to every FG part. I've tried to look in the Customization forumn for some code that would do this for each FG part in an assembly but I had no luck finding anything.
