I am using SolidWorks 2010 Education Edition. I am trying to make an assembly of several different parts, such that the dimensions of some of them depend on the dimensions of the others. To define such dimensions I use equations and global variables in each part, but what I need is to define variables common to all the different parts, such that changing the value of said variables would allow me to update properly all the parts.
I am aware this problem is solved in the 2012 edition by allowing you to define equations in an external text file, but I believe this is not possible in 2010 edition. Any ideas on how to solve this issue?
