Hi,

I am hoping to create a block that's length is based on the perimeter of a block. Is there any equation I can use to do this?

Thanks!

The only way I can think of would be to dimension the length of each line of the perimeter and create an equation adding them up. Then you can use that value to alter the Length however you'd like.

See attachment. I created an extrusion based loosely on the image you provided. In Sketch 2 I did a Convert Entities as construction lines, then did a path length dimension (driven).

Then I linked the path length to a global variable I created, then another global variable based on the equation you provided, then linked the slot length to the second global variable.
