Hello - it's been now several days that I have been stuck on a problem and I can't find a solution online.
Let's assume I have three adjacent components in an assembly, which are bound by tangency of one their faces respectively, like in the picture below.
The relevant size of these components along the direction perpendicular to the tangent faces are L1, L2 and L3 respectively.
Before transferring the geometry to ANSYS Fluent, I would like to set L2 as a parameter, so that I can run several simulation at different L2 values.
I have try to set a Driving Dimension using the Pull tool, but if I try to chnage it, what happens is that Component 2 will overlap with either Component 1 or 3 depending which face of Component 2 I have selected for pulling.
What I'd like instead is either component 1 or 3 to move accordingly to accommodate the change of size of Component 2.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Davide Masiello
I tried it at my end, and it works as you want it to be. There might be some problem with your assembly constraints that you defined.
I have attached sample assembly with driving dimensions in it, please check and let me know if have any questions.
Also, you can refer Creating driving dimensions in SpaceClaim - SpaceClaim Tutorials - Ansys Discovery Forum tutorial which demonstrates creation of driving dimensions in SpaceClaim. 🛈 This post originally contained file attachments which have been removed in compliance with the updated Ansys Learning Forum Terms & Conditions
