Subscriber # I want to make cylinders in a slot box and move these geometry a certain height.

I want to calculate these geomery change effect by optiSLang.

So I want to set 3 parameters, circle radius, Block_height, Block_Width.  All three parameters should be in parmeter set.

There is no problem to make circles and extrude them by parametric radius which located in Block_Width x Block_Lenght(15999mm, constant).

But the Block_Width cannot be define in script parameters. I think it is driving parameters.

Because the number of circles are determined by the area of Block_Width x BlockLength, it is impotant to set Block_Width as parameter which I want to use in parameter set in Workbench.

And I move these whole set of cyliners in slot(Block_WidthxBlockLenght x thickness) into a certain height(Block_Height).

Unfortunately “move” geometry in SpaceClaim cannot be a driving parameters.

And driving parameters only can be parameter set in DX or optiSLang, isn’t it true?

Help in SpaceClaim don’t help me. SpaceClaim Script document doesn’t decribe script parameter in detail.

Where can I find proper document except this Forum?
