Automating pannel Design, Adding Extra Slots.

Hello,

 

I am at a stage where I can't seem to work this out and would like to know if anybody can help?

 

I've Designed a simple Frame using Extrusion pieces and corner segments and set them up in driveworks express,

So that i can insert the size of the frame, and it will spit out a frame with the correct length extrusions etc.

 

I would like to extend this capabilty and use driveworks to produce the pannel's which attach to each side of the frame.

I have certain geometry which need's to stay the same, And I can do these easy by using relations etc.

 

But, in most of the pannels we run a series of vents allong the top and or bottom.

(usually a Slot, then pattern feature)

 

Is it possible to setup a relation or something simular to control the number of slots according to the width of the pannel?

 

For example, I would like centre the "feature(spots) then say every 50mm of width produces an extra slot, which is added to the series of slots, re-centering the series.

 

Does this make Sence?

 

Hope someone can help!

 

Would be great to have this setup.

 

Regards
