Creating Equations in External Files

You can create equations in a text file and then import them into one or more parts and assemblies.

  1. Open a text file in an application such as Notepad.
  2. Type equations in the same format as used in the Equations dialog box.
    For example, you might define a global variable, base, and define two related dimensions.
    "base" = 20
    "D1@Boss-Extrude1" = "base" + 10
    "D2@Sketch1" = ("base"*3) + 5
  3. Save the text file.
You can import the text file into one or more parts and assemblies with the Equations dialog box.
