Problems to center Slot

Hi,

 

I'm fairly new to Solid Edge but enjoying it a lot so far Smiley Happy

I have a problem with centering a Slot in Sheet Metal, it does not move when I change the width of the Flange - it just stick to the same place.

 

Is it not possible to attach relations, like you can do in Solidworks?

 

I uploaded a small video of my problem:

Hi Kenneth,

 

You can do this either:

1. By adding another dimension (distance between) the edge of the flange and the center line of the slot and adding a relation in the variable table. Or

2. By adding a Horizontal/Vertical face relation in Sync between the slot center and the midpoint of the flange:

Re: Problems to center Slot

you need to create a 3d relationship there with face relate.
