I then wanted to iterate all possible thicknesses, say from 5mm to 50mm increasing every 5mm, until I find the ideal one.nThe problem I'm facing right now is that I cannot export the glass thickness as a parameter from spaceclaim. I saw some videos on how to do it with Direct Modeler, but it looks to me that spaceclaim lacks parametrization completely.nIs this correct, or is there a way to parametrize geometry? Can I export the thickness so to iterate it using Direct Optimization?nThanks!n
