Parameters are temporary, as you have found out, they will not define a sketch. Best practice (IMHO) is to use relations and dimensions.
I never never never use parameters. They are useless. In six years I have barely noticed they are there. Actual dimensions and relations are the only way to define a sketch.
So why would SWKS developers waste resources on this? Even worse...students try to use parameters to dimension their drawings (despite me pleading w/ them to use the smart dimensions) only to get unexpected results later on. There must be some reason they are there. I have searched in SWKs help too, but it doesn't even mention them...weird??
They've been there for as long as I've used SW. I imagine they are there for ACAD users who can't get past the mentality of getting your lines and stuff exactly where they go before putting dimensions on.
I need help..
I work in the field of Fire Fighting vehicles.
I need drawings in solidworks format or Parasolid of 3 vehicles of Ford Motor Company in 3D.
a Crew Cab
an Extended Cab
and a Regular Cab
They are F series vehicles ( Cab and Chassis )
I contacted the Ford Company but the do not give or sell their drawinds.
I am wondering if it is possible to find those drawings on the Internet
I recommend creating a new topic with your question. It's a pretty specific question but you'll increase your odds of getting an answer as opposed to posting a reply on an unrelated topic. My recommendation for a category would be 3D Content Central. Just make sure the "message title" is descriptive.
Thank You Ryan
