I have a bar that is assembled into a rotational pattern and I am trying to optimize the length of the bar so that a measurement between adjacent bars in the assembly is equal to a specific value. At the assembly level, I have created a measurement sensor for the measurement that I would like to have set to a specific value. Unfortunately, when I set up the design study, I am unable to select the length dimension of the bar as a parameter to vary. SW only wants to give me the ability to select parameters/dimensions at the assembly level and not at the piece part level.
Does SW have the ability to do what I am asking? If so, how?
In the image below, Measurement1 is my sensor that I want to set equal to 20 in. I can't click on a feature dimension on a piece part.
