My goal is to open have people go into a central assembly file, type in their specific parameters and the various part files update within the assembly. I wish to do this without the need for an excel sheet, but when I try to link the parameters from the assembly file to the part files, it will not allow me to insert these parts. I get an error about an "assembly can not be placed into itself."
Iparts will not work as this has an infinite amount of sizes.
Thanks in advance.
It is also possible to have the parameters in your assembly and then use an iLogic rule to push their values out to the part files.
I think I was accomplished what you are trying to do. Not 100% sure,
I wanted to have a finished assembly file, that could altered by changing specifc parameters.
in my case, the 'skeleton' file dives the frame size. the sheet metal panels are a linked to the frame size, so if the frame size changes then the panels change accordingly.

I solved my own question, in the last post there is a link to a set of short videos, these were VERY helpful...
Let me know if it is what you were looking for.
