Extrusion coupling variables

I have a model that consists of two geometries: one in 1D and the other in 2D axial symmetry. For each time step, I want the values attained by solving for one of my variables from a line boundary in the 2D axial symmetry to be used to solve for a second variable in the 1D geometry. After this variable is solved for in the 1D geometry, I want these values used to solve for the first variable in the 2D axial symmetry geometry. I want this to occur repeatedly so that my model is continuously sending the last solved for values in one geometry to the other geometry. My line in 2D axial symmetry space is the same length as the line in 1D, so I believe I want to do a linear transformation with "extrusion coupling variables". I have tried to set up two linear transformations, but am not getting my model to work properly. Does anyone have any insight for this problem?
