How to link intersection dimensions to global variables?

I'm using SOLIDWORKS 2019.

I'm trying to use the Intersect tool to "fill" a tank and pipes with water.

This isn't available for assemblies so:

  1. first I saved the assembly as a part,
  2. then added a block of water to the part and
  3. subtracted the pipes from the water to get the intersection.


The dimensions of my original parts are linked to global variables in a common text file but the assembly-saved-as-a-part and the resulting intersection are not. Is there any way to link the intersection to the global variables, or possibly a workaround?


Thank you!
