    Linking Equations with Smart Dimension to Extruded Features

    Jakub Kwiecinski

      Hello,

       

      I Have a question for anyone who is familiar with linking equations to features using Smart Dimensions.

       

      Currently, I am capable of linking to my dimensions in my sketch to defined equations using the Smart Dimension feature (pretty standard stuff).

       

      Now, I am looking to extrude my sketch to form a 3D part (again, pretty standard).  Unfortunetly, the thickness of the extrusion is dependant on a global variable which i have defined in my equations, and I cannot seem to link the thickness of the extrusion to the variable.  I know this is possible with the Smart Dimension feature, I just don't know how!

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

       

      Cheers,
