Part design

Hi all.

I just started using OnShape today. This is truly an awesome package to be using. I have a background using AutoCad and PTC Creo.
I am very keen to start designing my first product using OnShape, but I've run into a problem quite quickly.

I'm need to design parts that reference dimensions from previously designed parts. In other words, say I have an M10 bolt, I need to design a washer with the ID being a bit bigger than the bolt itsself. When the bolt size changes, so must the ID of the washer.

This is just a simple example to illustrate what I need to do.
I would appreciate your feedback immensely, as I see a lot of potential with this program.
