I have an assembly in which the thickness of each of the layers in an assembly are generated from a part file that is split via a sketch. I use the Make Components tool to break the part into the individual layers, which also spits out an assembly.
Is there a way to push the thickness value of these parts that will update automatically if the thickness is changed in the parent part, in order to reference this property on the drawing?
This helps, but I neet that parameter to report to a property, so I can get it to update in a view note that I place in the drawing.
Thanks for your help, rdyson. I'm really close to solving this.
It looks like because the parts I'm trying to get a thickness from are made from a parent part, the thickness will not update when the thickness is changed in the parent part. Does this make sense?
Yes I did. The model itself updates, but the parameter does not.
I attached the parent part, and the layer parts that come from it if you want to try and replicate the problem.
