Make Two part dimensions the same

Experimenter
Experimenter

I was reviewing some old concept models my former counter parts created and ran into a part dimensioning technique I can not figure out.

Notice the 54.750 on the left and right. The left one is red so it can be modified. The right one is Blue and copies whatever I change the left one to.

How is this done?

I do not see any mirrioring or symmetricly releations going on.

Hi Ken,

There are several ways to do this but probably the most direct would be to double-click on the dimension that you want to be "driven" (blue) by the "driving" (red) dimension.  When you double-click on the dimension, you will get a menu at the top where you can rename, apply a formula, comment, etc.  Click on the value of the "driving" dimension and it will make them equal..

If you go to Tools-Variables, you'll get more details on "stuff" you can do with all the variables in your model.

Hope this helps,

I do this trough the variable table most of the time.

There you can add a lot like this:

You see the variable "as"? That's made in the table. Other dimensions are calculated from this one.

You can even use them in other files:
