A trivial problem
So I'm a newbie here and self-trained in Ansys (hence a bit unskilled).

I have a problem :

Apparently when I choose to change dimensions of Layer B, the dimensions of Layer A and Layer C also change.Is it because Layer A and Layer C are a pattern of Layer B ?

By the way what do you mean by a pattern ? Is it simply a copy-pasted image of an existing geometry ?

The project I'm working on is a 3 layered plate (each layer of plate stuck to the other).If I want to create such a geometry , then what should I do (except using solidworks , catia or other CAD programs since neither do I have knowledge nor resources to use them).

Thank You in advance.

Please see this incase if you file the screenshot insufficient to answer.

Thank You again.

You may be able to create your 3 layers using 3 Extrude.

Juste create one layer, use the top or bottom surface to create your second layer (just extrude the surface) and do it again for the third layer.

If i understand you right, all of your 3 layers are the same except the thickness.
So it should work for your application :
The 3 layers will be stuck to each other but with independant thickness
