i-logi Driving a part parameter from an assy.

Hi. I have a multi body part that I componented into an assembly. I am trying to get the assembly parameter in this case, "Height" to drive the parameters in the part model. I think I am using the right code but I get an error when I run the rule. See attached,

Thanks.

It seems backward to me to try to drive parameters down from the assembly level when you are using a multi-body modeling approach.  Why not just put your parameter in the base part and drive it up?

 

You may be running into cyclic dependency issues.

 

Can you post an example assembly with parts that shows the problem?

That error doesn't tell us anything. Can you post the files here?

The reason is because I need to break the parts down so that I can dimension each part independently for a cut list.

I have used this method in the past  but for some reason cannot get it to work right this time.

Thank you.

Thank you.

I'm not sure I'm attaching the file the right way.
