Get a list of all the parametric dimensions and variables in a SOLIDWORKS Part

Article by Chris Briand, CSWE updated April 26, 2016


With users migration to SOLIDWORKS from so many other CAD systems, one of the…(Ahem..) “deficiencies” we hear about is the lack of a singular location to see a list of all of your SOLIDWORKS parametric dimensions and variables within a part. Sometimes a list like this will help folks organize their thoughts regarding the parametric ordering of features and equations.

We do have a solution in the last few releases of SOLIDWORKS, located within the Tools > Equations dialog box.

The Dimension View button within the equation editing dialog will do exactly this, give us an entire list of every variable contained within our part file.
