I'm not sure I follow your intentions, however you have to exit thesketch, and "CTRL-Q" in the assembly, to get everythingto update. if you just CTRL-Q with the sketch open (andreally, while "editing" the part), then it will onlyrebuild the part you have open.
I will also generally not advise constraining a sketch to a movingpart in an assembly, Solidworks gives you a warning when you tryand do that for a reason. But, it can serve it's purpose,depends what your intentions are...
i Crtl-Q in the assembly, after exiting the sketch and thepart.
SW didn't give me any warnings...
the reason i have the sketch "in-context" and related tothe moving , i.e. swinging rollers, is that i need to know how muchof the film contacts the application roller at various positions ofengagement, as the contact area is critical. i also need toknow how much i need to swing the roller to completely clear theapplication roller also.
i do have it working though. too much typing to explain itall, but basically broke my sketch into two separate ones
thanks thought for the input
