Move Face Parameters

305 Views, 2 Replies

In doing a move face I noticed there isn't any parameters that can be edited after the move face has been created. I want to control the face length with a parameter after it has been created. Am I missing something or is there a work-a-round?

Thanks in advance

Hi meck,

 

If you switch from the Free Move method to the Direction and Distance method, I think you'll get the parameter input you're looking for:

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
