How to create a new ipt related to another existant ipt

Hi everyone,

 

If a could get an answer to this one, it would be great!

Here is the simplifyed question :

 

I have a part called rectangle.ipt (simply a rectangle in it).

 

I have to creat another part, called rectangle_holes.ipt. This one, is the same as rectangle.ipt, same dimensions, but has holes in the rectangle.

 

Is there a way that theses 2 parts could be related, so that if the dimensions of rectangle.ipt changes, rectangle_holes.ipt  automaticaly changes?

 

Thanks!

Sophie

You could make the first rectangle and save it.

Then open a new ipt. file. Go to manage and derive the rectangle, then add what ever you want, and save the part.

What ever you do to the first rectangle will now be updated into your second file.

 

 Let me know, if you can use this solution :smileyhappy:
