Sketch dimensions imported to MBD

My company is in the early stages of Model-Based Definition and how to work more efficient with it. The way we work today is that in the sketches, when we are making the 3D-part, we are defining our dimension. Which makes it easier and quicker to make a 2D-drawing later.


When I was using MBD and learning how it works, I could not find an easy way to use these sketch dimensions in the MBD. Which means I have to use set my dimensions AGAIN and define my tolerances AGAIN.


Is it just me that can not find the feature or is there actually no way to use the sketch dimensions in a easy way?
