limits on dimension values


New member
Hey guys,

Is there a way to constrain a dimension to an upper and lower value? I don't mean "Dim Bound", because I'm not interestedin representing tolerances. I simply don't want the end user to be able to exceed certain values when they're modifying a part. I'd appreciate some help, thanks.

... or look up "Resticted Value Parameters". Might be something there.

A conditional statement in a relation will probably be easier but the restricted value parameter will alert the user when an unacceptable value is input (or so says Help; I've never gone to the trouble to set one up).

I want to avoid setting up a relation for this, if I can. I'll go with "Restricted Value Parameters" and see where that goes. Thanks again for the help.
