Basically what I am trying to do is link the length of a flange on one part to a different part. Am I able to take the dimension from another part and say I want this flange to be a certain length plus the seperate part dimension?
Link to Excel spread sheet.
Derived Components - Named parameters.
Adaptive top-down modeling.
I prefer in that order. (more or less, depending on design intent)
Is there a number I can call and have someone walk me through some of these steps. I am new to Inventor so I am still unsure of how to accomplish these things
Where are you located?
I offer 3-day classes on beginning Inventor topics.
There are many tutorials here
http://au.autodesk.com and other places.
If you can take JDMather up on his class offer, I'd highly recommend it, but if not and you can view youtube.com, here is a quick video showing the steps to link parameters between parts::
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
