Add Parameter-Control FB

Why should I use a Parameter-Control FB?

Use a Parameter-Control FB to:

control the dimension (length or radius) of a sketch-element

control the Extrusion Depth of an MD-Solid*

control the Extrusion-Offset of an MD-Solid*

Apply a Parameter-Control FB for Mechanism-Synthesis, or animations with more realistic effects.

* When a Parameter-Control FB controls the Extrusion-Depth or Extrusion-Offset of an Extrusion that has many facets, the model is slower to cycle.
