Place Assembly Constraints with parameters from the Parts in the Assembly

Hi,

 

I was curious if it is possible to make a constraint that utilized a parameter of a part within the assembly.

 

For example, if I wanted to use the thickness of a plate, which I defined in the part, could I call that parameter in a constraint?

 

Any help would be great.

 

Thanks

Open Parameters in the iam, at the bottom click Link. Change file type to ipt and browse to the part file you want to use. Select the part parameters of interest.
