Dimensions specified by a user when importing a part into an assembly? Basically a configuration with custom dimensions instead of predetermined

As per the picture except instead of choosing a predetermined configuration, a fillable field(s) that is used to dimension the part.

For example: For this part, a field that specifies hole diameter instead of choosing one from the list.

Any thoughts or ideas are welcome! I'm assuming this will be done in a macro but not sure where to start.


The end goal, for those who are wondering, is an easy way to make ducting layout assemblies from a pen-and-paper site visit sketch. Currently I spend too long searching for just the right piece for say, an elbow [relevant details: diameter, corner radius], and then also making straight sections that are an awkward length [ex 52' 3"]. (Any comments on improving this process are also highly appreciated)


Thanks for your time.
