I wonder if someone of you knows the answer ;-)
I am trying to understand how to change the formula when I am pasting the link to another part dimension.
The variable V453 is linked to a different part which it has a width 400mm.
What I want to achieve is a formula like - (@ link to another part dim) - 3mm - so, in conclusion, I will get 397mm.
Would you please tell me how to write that formula?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It seems you cannot directly edit CopyLink-PasteLink formula.
Instead ceate a new var and PasteLink the width from another part into the var.
Then use the var in the (final dimensions) - 3

Hope you find this useful.
Thanks for the praise Arek.
That was a low hanging fruit.
In fact, it is a recommended practice to always inter-link to local variables and then use those variables to drive dimensions. This way they can be kept separate and formulas can be applied before using the values.
