Sounds like:



external copy-geom

or

Pro/Notebook (layouts)

or

External merge (reference)

or

UDFs (2 parts tied to same UDF)



There are other methods also.

Refer to the online help for more detail, but here is a thumbnail for doing this type of thing with layouts:



1) Create a layout (i.e. hardware_dims.lay)



2) Create a parameter in this layout to hold the diameter value (i.e. DIA)



3) open both parts and declare the layout to the parts (Declare/Declare Lay)



4) Create a relation in the part to drive the diameter dimension with the newly inherited parameter (i.e. d7=DIA)
