    Having multiple parts refer to one sketch

    Nick Gast

      Hello everyone,

       

      On the factory floor I have several parts of different lengths and with machining differences all based off of one Aluminum extrusion.

       

      For the Solidworks setup, I would like to have all of these partfiles based off of one sketch of the profile of the Aluminum, which I could then go in and edit if the profile ever changes, thus changing all the associated parts.

       

      I know this would be possible using configurations, but my company likes having separate files for each part.

      I was unable to make this work with blocks, because changing the dimensions on a block did not update to existing parts based on that block.

       

       

      Thank you for your help
