Add measurement as parameter

Status: New Idea
by Contributor RPdAnjou on ‎12-20-2012 12:35 AM

I'd like to be able to add a measurement (for example, the length of a sweep path) to the parameters (like driven dimensions) and use it on other features/dimension fields.


When modeling tubes, I want the length of the tube (a sweep) to show up in the BOM of the assembly where the tube is used. So I want to be able to put the parameter of the measurement into the "Base Quantity" of the Tube part.
