Hey Everyone,


Well I've been banging my head against the wall for the last 2 days trying to figure this out.  Here's the problem....


I'm building a frame with dimensions controlling the width and length.  Not a problem.

I want to put in cross supports in the frame to support of a sheetmetal plate.  Not a problem.


The frame and supports are controlled by equations and links.  Everything works so far.


The first and last support are a set distance from the ends.  Not a problem.  Still working.


The Problem.....I want to control both the spacing and number fo instances to adjust with the width of the frame.  The spacing can not exceed 16" centers.  I can get it to work with design tables but want to control it will equations within solidworks so that I can utilize Driveworksxpress.


Any help would be appreciated.
