I am new to parametric parts. I just went through the example with the two holes through the plate with rounded corners. I'm having trouble with what appears to be a very simple upgrade from that example.
I have a rectangular plate with an elongated hole in it. The hole has arcs on each end. The trouble seems to be that, once I turn "Add Auto Contraints" on, I cannot dimension the elongated hole in relation to its position on the plate. The hole is drawn in 2D, then the rectangle and the elongated hole is extruded. I can move the hole around due to properties in the extrusion, but still can't dimension where the hole is on the plate.
Is this a limitation of v15.2, my computer, or my not knowing how to do this the right way? Answers appreciated.
UPDATE: I can get dimensions from the hole vertex to top & bottom edges of the plate, however, with Autocontraints on, they do not show as being Variables. Then, when using Format / Parametric Part, the hole-locating dimensions do not show up with a Constraint field.
