Distance finder
 
Hello everyone,

I have created parametric model in DM (Ansys 12.1 ) and I have to change one of my parameters quite often to get demanded distance between two faces. Problem is that every time i change the parameter i have to use analysis tool named distance finder to get value of faces distance and then correct my parameter, and try to measure it again , and this a few times to get exactly face distance :( It is really time consuming. Does anybody know how to display distance between two selected faces during changes of parameters ? I tried to to apply tangecy constrain on small circle and two sketches of my model , and set up it as reference, but when i moved with my model , circle gets random position , not the closest one.

I will be very greatful for any advice.

Miro
