How to link the expression values through Text Properties>Reference Text.

Phenom

When I use “Measure Distance” with Associative=ON; then the value appears in expression and as well as in Part Navigator.

Now I would like to use “Text” command and link the above value through Text Properties>Reference Text to create extruded text.

The idea is to show the instance of a cylinder-piston stroke as they been adjusted.

What is the best way do it?

Hi @mike_fdo,

 

It sounds like you're 95% there.  I assume you're using the Curve "Text" command.

Click the checkbox for "Reference Text" and choose Select Expression
Hit "Create String Expression" and enter a Name for your expression (for me this is on line 2) and for the Formula enter stringValue(X), where X is the "p" expression for your Distant Measurement.  Choose OK until you return to the Text dialog and place the text.

 

Regards, Ben
