User Sensor data in Equations/Custom Properties?

Question asked by J. R. on Mar 29, 2015



I'm using SW2015. I've been searching for this specific thing, and I couldn't find it.


In my very complex assembly, I have an "evaluation" part which takes various dimensions, shapes and relations between other parts, then runs some complex calculations in Equations, outputs results to Custom Properties, and then they are displayed in Drawings (via Notes).


This works very well, and is highly automated, but there are several complex things "evaluation" part needs to measure that cannot be done manually. For that, I've created Sensors. The problem is, I don't know how to use Sensor data in Equations or Custom Properties. I've searched how to create such a link, and didn't find anything yet.


Maybe it can be done with macros or Design Tables, but I need something that auto-updates without requiring user to do anything but change parts in the main assembly as he wishes, and then see the results of this chain of links in Drawings.


Can someone please help me out?
