Hi, I'm starting a new thread as i have not found a similar problem on the boards. I'm using NX 9
I have a sketch with several driving dimensions and one driven dimension. I need to change one of the driving dimensions (from 0 to 400 in increments of 1), and record the corresponding driven dimension to plot a graph.
I would like to know if it is possible to automate this process and export a table of the driving and corresponding driven dimensions in the form of a spreadsheet.

Actually, if you own the "Optimization Wizard" license (part of most Mach bundles these days), you'll also have access to the "Sensitivity Studies" tool that is designed for exactly this scenario. :-)
With this tool, you can:
1. Choose any number of "design variable" inputs, and specify step sizes for each
2. Choose any number of "watch values" for which to collect values
3. Let NX automatically iterate over the design space and collect this data for you. :-)
In addition to the kind of data collection workflow you've described, this tool is also super-useful for testing a parametric model over a design space to make sure that it updates robustly within the desired envelope -- great for testing parametric template models before deployment, for example.
Here's a video showing a simple collection case like you've described:
