    Easier than "Linked" Dimensions?

    Chris Lindloff

      Is there a way to create dimension values that are the same as another already placed dimension (in the same sketch).  I can do it with creating a linked value but this takes a number of picks, plus it will eventually set up a whole bunch of named links and I won't be able to remember what they go to.  I want to create a bunch of slots that vary in length and have one end as a converted edge.  Also the oppsitie end is not a tanget arc, so I cannot use the "equal" constraint to make the radius the same.

       

      Since they will also vary in lenght I cannot pattern them.  It would be ideal if when creating a dimension I could just pick another already placed dimension to be equal to.

       

      Any suggestions to improve what I am doing?
