I am looking for a little assistance with some nagging problems on relations and parameters. I have created an analysis feature (of an assembly) that calculates certain values in a relation. I want to use these values (real numbers) to be available as parameters of the assembly. For the prompted value of the parameter, I used the variable:fid_analysis_feature
and the parameter took the correct value. However, it does not seem to update the value of the parameter when the values in the analysis feature change; not
what I wanted.
I also want the values in a sketch feature (of the assembly) to take the values from the parameter times a scaling factor. Now, if the parameters don't take the value from the analysis feature, I am not updating the sketch feature's values either. Also, I can't seem to edit the relations driving the length of the sketch. The relations do not show up as relations of the assembly, or the feature. Strange?!
One more thing: I also want to create text (in the sketch feature) that will show the value of the parameter.
I have checked the Pro/E help and can not find out how to do these things. What am I missing? I am using Pro/E 2001. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
