You know I thought about it but this was all about how to do it with the least number of steps until I have a script ready that will 'just do it". But opening up the parameters to type in a name and a number then attaching to it with more steps seemed wasteful for the want of typing in one number.
But easy to do if someone wants it that way.
But to the point you make … Maybe I should just make the whole thing parametric and post the fusion drawing.
Good point @bbum
Thanx for this. I bookmarked it and have now gotten to it. I have been doing mine with an additional sketch on the edge. I’m going to do it this way for a while just to see if I like this better.
A few thoughts:
If you don’t use any other named parametric do it for material thickness. Well worth the extra trouble if you ever decide to make it again and your new ply is now .210"! Dimension the offset and these will be self-maintaining.
I’d just make a named parameter for this as well because I can never remember the ones Fusion assigns.
Good Points. I do have 2 that are parametric for the ones that are used regularly. I did not want to confuse any new people wanting to try to do a set of tabs in this tutorial. Parametric is certainly a next step.
Working a F360 full script with Parm input if I can find some extra time somewhere.
