    keeping dimension equal without adding a relation

    Kevin Mazurkiewicz

      Hello,

      I am new to Solidworks, so this is most likely a simple thing to answer...

      When making a rectangle and using the smart dimension feature i try to change the dimension of say the top line and it changes only the top line making the rectangle no longer a rectangle. When watching tutorials everyone elses changes both top and bottom dimension so they are equal. Heres a photo of what im talking about.

      and if i try to make the other side the same dimension which i feel should not need to be done it creates what is in the 2nd picture
