I have a part designed parametrical ( the dimensions of the part are a function of the diameter of a hole in this part) so whenever I change the diameter of the hole, the other dimensions of the part should change. On this basis I wanted to create configuration. But every time I create a new conf. And change the diameter, I see also the other configurations change to that new diameter and all the confgs. Are the same. What could be the probable cause?
A dimension will change globally until linked to a configuration(s). Try right clicking the diameter dimension and select 'configure dimension'. You should then be able to use the table that pops up to assign the diameter you want to each configuration.
I don't know of any specific model but there may be some. I myself have a brushless DC motor 'base' model that I use to drive all the downstream motor components which has an extensive table of equations and variables and I never touch a single dimension in the model, all the work is done parametrically. I can have a completely new motor drawing package ready for supplier quotes in a couple hours providing the designs are similar enough. They should give me a raise ;-)
thank you Robert, by the way , do you know a model constructed like this on GrabCAD that I can download and take a look at ?
And good job using parametrics to tie features together. This is a great way to tame or automate models. You can take it REALLY far and do an amazing amount of work by simply changing a few variables.
thank you very much for your answer ,well by right clicking on the dimension in sketch, I didn't see this option , am I doing sth wrong ?
You must first close out of the sketch. Double click the hole, and right click the diameter dimension when it displays.
