Global Parameters and Design Studies

Hi All,

 

I would like to run mechanica opimizations by varying global parameters in a layout file. But the optimizations will not run because connection to the layout file is one way and mechanica cannot change the parameter.

 

The question I have is: Is there any way around this?

And why is this connection to the layout file one way?

 

Thanks for any help,

 

Paul

    Paul,

     

    Mechanica was designed to interact with 3d models directly and not drawings.
    If you created the parameters at the part/assembly level it should work.  If you are referencing
    a drawing parameter in mechanica, mechanica will not be able to modify it as far as I know.
