|This task will show you how to synchronize external parameters between a drawing and another document.|
ExtParamPart.CATPart document. As you can see, a length parameter has
been created on the part and is displayed in the specification tree. Its
value is 10mm.
For further information on creating parameters for a part, refer to Working with Parameters section in the Knowledge Advisor User's Guide.
Open the ExternalParam.CATDrawing document and tile the drawing and the part windows horizontally. To do this, click Window > Tile Horizontally from the menu bar.
|To make sure those two parameters are associated:
For further information on the General tab, refer to the Part Infrastructure for Knowledgeware Applications section in the Knowledge Advisor User's Guide.
|First of all, you are going to create a new parameter in your drawing
based on the part's parameter.
|To propagate changes between the part and the drawing:
|You cannot use the Update icon to refresh the parameters. You have to synchronize them individually.|
|If you create a text on the drawing that references the external parameters thanks to the Attribute link option, updating the drawing will synchronize the parameters.|
