Can I toggle which dimensions are driven in an over-defined sketch?

I'm currently using the following sketch to setup my revolved feature.

The dimensions that are driven by Driveworks are D1, D3, D4, and XO_OD2. I will need to create a new dimension for the same sketch but if I do that it will be over-defined.

The new dimension that needs to be driven is D3 (the 3.00"). In this case, the angle can vary (does not need to be 45°) but the distance from the beginning of the angle to the end of the radius must remain at 3 inches.


I have a problem because in some cases I will need to define the sketch as seen in the first picture and in other cases I need to define the sketch as seen in the second picture. I know I can make two different sketches but there are multiple features after the creation of this one that are referencing this revolved sketch.


Is there a way to toggle the dimensions that I need in an over-defined sketch and delete the ones that aren't required? I'm not sure if I'm explaining myself correctly. Any suggestions are welcomed!


Thank you!
