This video shows how to work with equations to update parts.
- [Instructor] Question number two of the sample exam…asks us to update some of the equations and dimensions…on this part, and then weigh it out.…So in this case here, you can see we have a A of 200,…a B of 110,…a C of 40, and a D of 18.…If I go over here to my equation toolbar…open that up…I see the A, let's go ahead and change that one…to 200.…And you can see why this is really handy…to be able to easily change these…equation values…and just type in a new value here.…
So highlight that out.…That's gonna be 110.…Forty.…And then 18.…Okay.…Once those are changed, go ahead and click Okay.…Come up here and…rebuild the document.…I'm gonna go ahead and expand that out all the way.…So now I have my new modified part.…Everything automatically updated because…everything is linked to those equations.…So that's why you definitely want to make sure…that you establish those equations in the beginning…because most of these exam questions…build upon each other.…
And then most of the time I'm gonna take…one existing part and keep modifying it…
