WCH and variable dimmension in standard part

Hello all,

l have a longtime problem, that has to be solve.

Description:

- inside Winchill can be each part only ONCE

- l have a induction senzor, that is used many times in many project

- it has a "variable" datum plane dimmension. This is a constrain datum plane.

Problem:

- 1st project (used) dimmension = 10mm

- 2nd project (used) dimmension = 25mm

Question:

- how to make it variable accross whole system and keep only ONE source part?

My idaes to comment:

1) family table ---> lots of instance ---> looks unsuitable (novice solution)

2) many datum planes ---> lots of datum planes---> looks unsuitable (novice solution)

3) simplify representation + many datum planes ---> lots of simply rep and datum planes---> looks unsuitable

4) flexible dimmension ---> l like these idea to datum plane flexible feater

5) Have no other idea. Will be happy if you could share your expiriences.

See picture belowe.

Hi, using flexibility (flexible component) is probably the best approach for dealing with this issue.
