Your problem can solve by using equations....try by using Equations

Josh Brady Nov 7, 2012 12:44 PM (in response to Alessandro Tornincasa)The math for that is pretty tricky. I'm not sure it's solvable without iteration.

Josh Brady Nov 7, 2012 2:35 PM (in response to Dwight Livingston)Dwight, the problem with this approach is that you are solving for the wrong variable. The location of that upper point in space is what is driving the physical assembly. Basically you have to solve for the location of the center of the radius for any given location of the moving point. You cannot give a set arc length, angle, or lower length (the 2" dimension in your example).

Mohammad Darabseh Nov 8, 2012 6:28 AM (in response to Alessandro Tornincasa)try to make these three lines like three parts in an assembly,
try to make the arc as a circle where you will try to make it as hinge for your assembly,
then try to set the limit by making an equation in the assembly.

Deepak Gupta Nov 8, 2012 6:50 AM (in response to Alessandro Tornincasa)Also try looking at creating a spline/curve driven by equation and set the dimension to the required value.

Re: How to set a limit to the sum of a set of dimensions
Josh Brady Nov 8, 2012 10:28 AM (in response to Deepak Gupta)The problem is that you can't write the equation with a closedform solution... Please, try it. I have spent a couple hours on it in the past. I would love to see a noniterative, analytical solution.
