I recently imported a Chain Sprocket in from the Toolbox and added some
I then made a print of this part.

It was then decided that the number of teeth should change from 20 to 18.

Is there any way to simply change the number of teeth.

I have looked in the equation dialog, but no luck.

Can anybody offer suggestions??

Had you made a copy of the TB part and inserted it into the new part
where the additional features were added you could then change the TB
part and the part you wanted would be changed. I think TB parts have to
be in an assembly to access the modification commands.

I am using a standard Ansi metric 8x90mm socket head bolt from the toolbox,

I them brought home a assembly with a block of metal with four of these
bolts in. I then went to file ,open and checked the references and they were
at the same location. I then opened the assembly and ended up with huge big
bolts, not the 8x90 mm ones!!

How? what? where? All I want, is it to work, is that really too much to ask?

First the mates question.
Scenario one,
If I select a side of a part and select other, click ok, hold the Ctrl key
and then select another part, then select the mates icon, the mate that I
require works.
Scenario two,
If I have the mates selection box open, select a side of a part and select
other, click ok, the selection changes from "other" to the side I first
selected !! I have tried this in several assemblies and happens all the
time. Is this a bug?

Toolbox question,
I have been playing around with adding my own parts to the toolbox and now I

Sheet metal question,
1.2mm mild steel, 100x100mm base flange, 25x25mm centred edge flange, back
stop set to 25mm, 90deg bend.
Why does the fold go all the way along the flange edge, even if the edge
flange is smaller in width than the base flange?
Using  0.8mm radius tooling and a 10mm "V", this would never happen in "real
life", as the base flange edge would just get lost in the "V"
