    Linked Global Variable File

    Andy Abate

      I am having trouble with the "Link to external file" feature of Solidworks 2015. I am happily using it to create global variables which are shared across part files for my assembly, but neither Pack and Go or Solidworks Explorer seem to update this field when branching a design. Both P&G and SE keep the _old_ equation file linked rather than the new one. I have seen this in several other questions, but there have been no useful responses.

       

      I wonder if there is a better way to use Global Variables across multiple parts, just like the linked file, but in a way where I can copy the assembly without having to manually update all the references...

       

      Thanks!
