is there a way to access sketch variable outside the sketch and attribute them to parameter like extrusion distance and insert operator or equation like in fusion360 or inventor ?

Hi charles delepelaire,
Parameterizing is one of the features of SpaceClaim and can be accessed through the 'Groups' tab 'Create Parameter' option.
Also, another method can be scripting.
The following references might help you with the same,
Hope this helps!
i'va already heard a little about that. but i don't want to create groups.
what i want is to create a sketch, add rectangle with W and H cotation.
create a parameter somewhere (for example: X=5)
create an extrusion where extrusion length is equal to W*X and stay linked to these value.
You can also parameterize the dimensions by clicking the 'P' option beside the respective dimension.
For more information, the following references might be useful.
1. Recording Blocks (ansys.com)
Hope this helps!
it works inside discovery
works too inside spaceclaim but pav. num. wildcards can’t be used i need to use wildcards from [µ/*] button in alphabetical pav.
but i was not able to link data from an equation/data table
[EDIT] it seems blocks need to be discarded before closing conception... so how can we re-access to parametric data ?
