Configuring Equations

This is really getting frustrating. I'm trying to get the company I work for to switch to SW, which I'm a novice at, but even I am growing weary.


My current challenge is to make a set of organ pipes that will be created with only a couple value changes...diameter(scale) and height.


1. When clicking through the different configurations, things just are inconsistent. Sometimes the model will change, sometimes it won't, sometimes it gets bigger when the equation shows it getting smaller.

2. When I put a set of the "flue pipes" in an assembly (there are 61 total pipes in a set) and changed the configuration for each pipe, somehow once I had it laid out nicely. Then when I changed my "master diameter"(Scale@PipeSizingSketch) the assembly went haywire. All of the pipes changed to that one diameter instead of following the equation instructions.

Any suggestions? Am I going about this totally wrong?

This is the final product: (Here is about 6 or 7 sets of these pipes, each set with 61 pipes)
