Drive Multiple Dimensions

This Generation Task allows you to drive multiple dimensions in a Part, Assembly or Drawing. If the address for the dimension and the value exists it will be driven.

Provide multiple dimension names and values using pipebar (|) delimited lists to separate the names and values. The Generation Task will take the first dimension listed and drive it to be the first value listed. The task will continue until there are no more dimensions to drive.

This Task will only drive Model Dimensions in Parts or Assemblies. It will NOT drive Driven or Reference Dimensions values.

This Task will only drive Sketch Dimensions in Drawings. It will NOT drive Model, Driven or Reference Dimensions values.
