Sorry if this question has already been asked and answered, but I have no luck finding it after way longer than should be searching for the answer. I am new to solidworks after 20 years on Pro/E so you please forgive me. I have this hatered of manually entered values. I would like to have the description of an assembly be driven by actual links to dimensions. This is simple enough to do with parts but for assemblies it seems not to be. Is there away to simply use the dimensions from the part? Can I extract the information from a custom property in the part? Is there a Solidworks bobble head I need to rub to gain the power that I used to be able to do in seconds.
