Re: Parametric rant

Thanks guys - Maybe I didn't actually pattern this..Maybe I just copied it over? Once you hit the independent/dependent switch that's the END of it??? I think I did say make them dependent.

I should copy the history tree or something, so I can explain what I've got. Since I'm doing NG stuff at home w/o Pro/E it makes it hard.

I tried to do what is suggested below I got a little farther. Part of my problem is that however I did this, the dimensions for the holes I pick on the copy show up over on the original spot I drew it. Oh... you said copy the holes... so is that like a third set??
