I’d like to see a way to get the Frame Generator tools to access the parameters. I am a top down kind of guy, and like using extrusions and dependent sketches for my frame skeletons. I derive almost everything to keep all my parameters centrally located.
The design I am currently engaged in was started without some specs, and after receiving them I find that he builder does not want any weld gapping. So I have to run through every weld and remove the gaps.
It would be nice to set the gaps a local parameter that is factored from a derived parameter, like ‘NomWeldGap = MatThickness * NomWeldGapFactorl’ or something similar. This way I can change the NomWeldGapFactor in the skeleton, and all the gap would alter in relation to their individual material thicknesses.
