Question Parameters to control geometry on Workbench

Hi,

I know the basics on how to work with Parameters on Workbench (assign values, assign expressions with other parameters, etc...).
I was wondering if there is any way to make parameters work beyond altering measures?.

Example:

I want to model a shell and pipes heat exchanger. Alongside with the dimensions of shell and pipe being parameters I would like to have the number of pipes on the exchanger as a parameter. Like turning "on/off" the pipes on the geometry, or allowing the change on one parameter to alter the configuration of the pipes.

Is anything like this possible?

Thank you for your help

If you create the pipes with the "Pattern" tool in Design Modeler, you can set number of copies as a parameter
