Structural member: part deforms when changing frame

Discussion created by Bjarne Van Buggenhout on Nov 13, 2019



I want to delete a square tube from my frame. When I do this, the whole frame deforms and tubes are repositioning themself.


Is there a way to add changes in the later stage of modeling without having to worry about deforming?


Here is the tube I want to change.


I deselect the sketch line from the structural member.


As you can see, some of the other tubes also disappeared and some changed position.



Anyone knows a solution to prevent this?

Or any tips for building up the part to prevent this in the future?


I am new to Solidworks so tips and critism is also welcome so I can make myself better.


Kind regards,
