Creating variations of parts based on similar parent parts

Question asked by Cyrus Rupa on May 28, 2019

Background: I am currently working with about 100 1/2" rods that get bent in various ways.  These rods are designed via a 3D sketch and sweep feature. They are than fabricated on a rod bender. To check tolerances we then create "check fixtures" that the rods can be placed into to see if they comply with our tolerances when production builds them.

 

My question: Is there a way to make these check fixtures to automatically follow the sweep of whatever rod it is in an assembly with?  Currently we do a sweep with a "convert entities" to get the shape of the rod it is checking.

 

Thank you,
