Parameters to control geometry on Workbench

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?.


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

Thank you jrunsten, while that was not what I was looking for specifically, it helped me solve my problem :)
