    Nebie needs help understanding and utilizing relation constraints

      Greetings everyone,

      Being a newbie to SolidWorks, for some reason I'm having problems in fully understanding and utilizing relation constraints. The assembly creation and mate relations seem to come naturally for me.

      My problem is with a part (which currently I can't get to upload and attach to this message). I have a sketch (slot) made of splines on a surface of an extruded tube. I would like the extruded slot to be adjustable (by way of dimensions in the sketch) in size and position in the general location which it currently resides but on the front plane.

      If someone could take a look at my model and make the corrections then I could learn from examining the corrected model. I have learned a lot in solidworks by analyzing others models in this forum.

      I will continue to try and attach the part for your review.

      Your time, effort and support is very much appreciated in this matter,

      Chris
