Constraints question



I am facing the problem with displaying the constrained lines.

On the sketch I can see that some of the line are under constraint - but they are.

On the 3D Part  environment I can see that this part is constraned.


Can you please tell me where is the issue ?


thank you,

Re: Constraints question

you are missing some tangent relationships in the corners and also some of the wall thickness values are not driving dims.


Might i suggest however that for this model that you only sketch the outside profile and then use the 3D command  THIN WALL.

Re: Constraints question

Might even consider doing a square shaped protrusion, radius the edges, and then thin wall. No real need to do a sketch, for this instance, IMHO.

Hi @MattJohnson_PG,


thank you for your reply,


Well, after restarting the computer this sketch became constrained itself.


So, strange behaviour.

Hi @Trikefreak


Thank you for your reply,


Yes, this is a next method to build this part. You can do it on many different method.

Re: Constraints question


I think frame generator needs cross section sketches like this, as it just does a protrusion of the selected cross section, but not sure.

Always best to be sure!
