    keep area of a closed sketch constrained when chaging dimensions

    Pete Hunt

      Hi Everyone.

       

      I'm trying to divide a shape into segments of equal areas, whilst changing the widths.

       

      The overall shape is a rectangle with large radiused corners. (449*452mm with 100mm radius on all corners) I want to divide this shape into 36 sections of equal area. At the moment I am envisioning this as a 6X6 grid. Is there any way that you can constrain areas in solidworks to achieve this?

       

      I can provide a sketch of what I mean if this helps.

       

      Thanks for all of your help in advance.

       

      Pete
