Equation Driven Curves with External References in Inserted Part

Question asked by Alexander Ermoshkin on Jan 14, 2020

Referencing a global variable in an equation driven curve causes a build error when the sketch is inserted into another part via the "Insert Part" feature. 


Does anyone know how to get around this issue?


Edition: Solidworks 2018 SP 4

Resulting Error:


Steps to reproduce:

1) Create a part with a global variable 

2) Create a sketch with an equation driven curve and use the global ie: Y= "myGlobal"*x^2

          NOTE:  referencing the global indirectly through a dimension also causes the same issue. 

3) Save the part

4) In a new part, Insert > Part, include only unabsorbed sketches

5) Ctrl-Q
