Driving a Model with a Spreadsheet

Hey Guys,
The title pretty much sums it up. I have a part that I made containing a series of points and planes that I'm going to use as assembly references in a larger assembly. What I'm wondering is if I can use an Excel (Or similar) spreadsheet to control the point locations?

Here is the part I'm referring to. Pretty much everything can be controlled with one, and in come cases, 2 dimensions.


To take it to another level, can a spreadsheet be used to control parts and assembly constraints?

Thanks,
Mike

Yes - CATIA has Design Tables that interface with Excel spreadsheets, linking spreadsheet cells to parameters. Search the online documentation for "Introducing Design Tables" to learn all about it.

Excelent! Thankyou. I'll post back in here if I have any problems with it.
