    Parametric Ordinate Dimensions

    Rob Edwards

      Hi all

       

      I'm detailing a pattern for the shop floor.  The actual job will be marked from measuring off 100, with a 5m tape so I thought it would speed things up a bit if I gave them all the numbers.  Essentially add 100 and aggregate the pattern spacing.  I have resulted to actually modelling a tape and adding far more ordinate dimensions than I need.  It works but doesn't seem ideal - even when I crop the view, it doesn't crop the dimensions

       

       

       

      I was wondering if anyone has a better way, perhaps using a table.  Writing this I guess I would need a macro to update the dims automatically.

       

      There will be lots of configurations of this part, all with different values for the pattern variables so it would be nice to get a quick solution.

       

      Thanks
