SpaceClaim has created a plugin for Excel that allows Driving Dimensions saved into the groups panel to be transferred to Excel.  This will allow users to drive parameters off each other and update the model based on this.  To enable this add-in, simply go to the SpaceClaim options, Add-ins page, and turn on the Excel Dimension Editor Add-in.  

In this tutorial you will learn to use parameters from Excel using Ansys SpaceClaim. You can download the geometry from this link.
