Constraints parameters as named variables (by Laurence)
Hello,

I'm very new to Solvespace. I switched from qCad because of Solvespace's parametric abilities.

Is it possible to define the parameters for a model centrally as named variables, and then refer to the names as constraints in the drawing?

Many thanks.

Not currently but this is a high priority feature.

Hi Laurence,

I have used a binary provided by a SolveSpace user with great success. It allows using a text file which has all the variables used in the drawing. See the following thread:
http://solvespace.com/forum.pl?action=viewthread&parent=1693

This allows me to auto-generate the text file from other design scripts, use version control, and greatly simplifies the constraints that Solvespace has to solve. All this with very little pointing/clicking once the file is setup.

Hope this helps.

That thread is fairly old, has it since been implemented into the main build? Just wondering as I can't figure out how to use named variables in solvespace right now and I'm not sure how to use that binary. Could you provide any insight?

Thanks in advance

No. I haven't had much time to dedicate to development since that due to personal circumstances.
