feature request, variables

Postby freecc » Sun May 12, 2019 5:31 pm

I want to design something and am not sure of the space in some areas between moving parts. I would like to be able to create a variable "space" and fill in dimensions as 20+space. And then if I want to change this space I can just do it with this variable and all places I use it would be affected.

So a list with variables to be used when you fill in the numbers is my request. I think it would be useful.

Expressions as mentioned above go well together with Spreadsheets from the Spreadsheet Workbench.
