Summary of the Step

In this Step, we edit the dimensions to which we have related the sketch-loop. The sketch-loop updates as we edit the length of the Part.

The sketch-loop becomes 'parametric'.

[Note: 'Parametric' means one parameter updates as you edit a related parameter].

In this case the length of the Part also 'parametrically' updates the length of the sketch-loop.
