Hello everyone and welcome to blog post #7 in this multibody blog series. This post also attempts to answer another body parameter related question:
How can I display, use or call-out a body parameter?
If you want to call out a body parameter then you have to use the syntax as explained in the Creo help here.
Note: For bodies that have the default name (body 1, body 2, etc) you cannot use the system-defined default body name but you have to use the body’s Feature ID. (The reason is that the system-defined names such as body 1, body 2, etc are localized and translated into other languages and therefore not representing stable references across languages.)
Let’s assume we have 2 bodies. Here their names and parameters list.
To call out the parameter “MY_BODY_INFO” for both bodies, we can now use the following for body 1
