Ello all. New student here:)


Today is my first day ever using solid works. I am a full time engineering student taking a 50 hour lab course for solid works. I am following the following publication:

SolidWorks 2015 Part 1 - Basic Tools By: Paul Tran


I am on chapter 3, my first sketch. Where i am having an issue, the book does not really explain what auto relations are. I understand to a point what relations are, IE, if i select 4 horizontal lines, set one line to a specific dimm, then the other 3 will follow.


But what are auto relations? My drawing has about 15 of these little boxes that show verticle or horizontal lines.
