Defining Parameters for Parametric Design Studies

You can define parameters for a SOLIDWORKS model that you can use to run a Parametric Design Study on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. You can specify model dimensions and global variables for the parameters.

If your model contains sensors, they are also included with the parameters when you import the data to the platform.

To define parameters in the SOLIDWORKS model:

  1. In the FeatureManager Design Tree, right-click Equations and click Add/Edit Parameters.
  2. In the Parameters dialog box, enter a name for the parameter.
  3. Optional: To define a parameter for a model dimension, select a driving dimension in the graphics area.
  4. Optional: To define a parameter for a global variable, select a global variable from the list.
