    dimension "linked value" value

    Mike Lydon

      I have a part that I did not create. It is a simple weldment, straight line, with short, equal, colinear reference lines at each end. A structural member is created at the line. We have taken over the sketch to change things parametrically. The o.d. and wall thickness, also have values that are linked to some other value. When I double click on the dimension to get to the modify box, I have the option to unlink the value, but no way to determine what the value is linked to. How do I determine what the linked value is?

       

      Thanks,

          If the dim is linked then it has a name.  If you look in the equations folder in the feature tree you will see all linked dims there.  One easy way to see what it may be linked to is to right click on the annotations folder in the feature tree and select the option to show feature dimensions.  Once you have done this to see then maes of the dimensions if you will click on the glasses (hide/show items) in the heads up view toolbar select the option to show dimension names (looks like D1).  Then look for a dim with the same name.
