If you use parameters in your models, you can see the parameter of the dimension, the value, or both.

This tip will show you how to change the display on dimensions. If you use parameters in your models, it may be easier to see the parameter of the dimension instead of the value, or maybe you want to see both.

Create a sketch and add some parameters to your sketch.

Right-click in the drawing field and select Dimension Display. Change to Expression.

Notice how the Dimension value is represented now. This is my favorite setting because it shows both the value and the parameter.

Now right-click and set the Dimension Display to Expression and notice the change.
