Re: Why the body section doesn't stay squared ?

At this point the only way to edit is via keyboard input.

 

Select the red driving 30" dim and key in the desired value.

 

Once constrained you can no longer drag the face...

Re: Why the body section doesn't stay squared ?

i lied,  you can drag teh face and relax teh dimensional constraints but this appeas to break the variable although the variable still shows that it is set correclty...

"Select the red driving 30" dim and key in the desired value."

Doesn't work, that's why I'm asking.

Re: Why the body section doesn't stay squared ?

in this video you can see that i can edit it.

can enter a value or dynamicly roll the mouse wheel.

 

note thought that if i relax dims and drag the face even though there is no warning the variable "break" until they are reestablished...  in my case i just added and removed "="

 

not good,.!!!

I don't know why you can and I can't. You can do what I thought I should be able to do but I can't. So why?

Same same. FYI I'm on mp8. Guess I'll send it to Ally.

Edit: Maybe this is one reason I haven't fallen in love with synchronous yet. There's something WRONG! With my system, me, the software. Something.

Edit2: Works fine in ordered.

If anyone's curious exiting Edge and opening it again fixed it. We've been getting that a lot around here lately for various anomalies so much so that it is the first thing I ask a user to try when he has a problem. I didn't follow my own advice.

Why Edge is so unstable is another subject.

Thanks for the answers.

I feel a little surprised that a face can't be dragged in the case of the first solution but it works.

 

A little further, I created the base as a polygon and  tried to add 4 holes whose spacing would grow with the square. The small crossing  lines used to center the holes have been created by 2 symetries of a first set.4holes.png

It doesn't work.

This time I think I know why. It is probably because "the relationship established in the sketch is not transfered". But how can I do it ? I could not find a way to establish a dimension for the center of a hole.

Re: Why the body section doesn't stay squared ?

take a look at this video  hope it help. : http://screencast.com/t/cQvnr1shaYt2

 

otherwise I'll reply more monday...

 

Happy Weekend ALL..   IT's 5 pm EST
