This is a book shelf in an assembly a file. I want to get this dimension of the length as well, to configure DT. How to get it?
I tried with suppressing coincident mate with sides and shelf and replacing it with distance mate it didn’t work.
Better use DriveWorkXpress (free automation add-in) and you can easily configure the model.
If you really want to go with DT only, then you can create a master sketch in assy and control the dimension of parts via that master sketch.
Where can I get this file?
I can get this file.
You need to start the DriveWorksXpress (it is available under tools > xpress products)
To get started, check the inbuilt tutorial in SOLIDWORKS.
