    Modifying base part dimenions

    Todd Carpenter

      I have an assembly, with a part inserted which is actually a part, with an inserted part (base part).  I can't seem to access the sketch dimensions in the base part from the assembly.

       

      Here's the "structure":

       

      MasterAssembly.sldasm

        DerivedPart.sldprt

         BasePart.sldprt

       

      I've tried BasePart@DerivedPart-1, DerivedPart-1@BasePart, DerivedPart-1/BasePart, BasePart/DerivedPart-1 and so far, SolidWorks throws the following error:

      "GetParentComponentByNameTree Error: Component not found for name '<insert attempts from above here>' in component path"

       

      Can anyone tell me how to access sketch/feature dimensions in the BasePart?  This is my first time working with a part made by inserting another part - I'm stumped.

       

      Thanks
