I'm using Solidworks 2013 and would love to automate this task but I don't know what the best approach would be. I'm hoping I can get some great feedback from the forum to help my decision making!
Ok I have a sub-assembly that consists of 1 to 3 parts depending on how it's configured. There is one part a hollow cylinder (pipe) in the sub-assembly that I would like to be able to automate a modification to once the sub-assembly is inserted into an assembly. The assembly would consist of a hollow cylinder. I would like the pipe part in the sub-assembly to have a parameter related to the assembly (the diamemter of the hollow cylinder in the assembly) so that a cut feature I have in the part will automatically update when I insert the sub-assembly into the assembly. Can this be done? Would global variables work best?
