Linked Values

Use linked values (also referred to as shared values or linked dimensions) to link two or more dimensions without using equations or relations. When dimensions are linked in this way, any member of the group can be used as a driving dimension. Changing any one of the linked values changes all others to which it is linked.

The variable name you specify becomes the name of the linked dimensions.

Linked dimension names and their current values appear:
  • In the Equations folder in the FeatureManager design tree.
  • In the Equations dialog box.
  • Under Value/Text Expression:
    • On the Custom tab in the Summary Information dialog box.
    • In the Weldment dialog box.
