  • Relate one dimension to another??

    I've got a situation where I need to relate one dimension to another and I'm not sure how.

    I have a flat part with holes all over it, top, bottom and sides. I made the side with the most holes and easiest access to datums the top side. I took my measurements, now I need to flip the part over, and do another alignment but in that alignment somehow tie in one feature to a datum that is no longer accessable.

    I have a through hole that I can measure and want to use as the relation feature.

    Am I making sense? Help Thanks

    You need to use equate alignment. Read the help file first then post any questions you have.

      I would have read the help file on it had I known what to look for. Equate, that works, got it, thanks.

        If you knew what to look for you would not be posting. I think we all know that, but I am sure it makes Cufomo feel better anyway.

          I think maybe Gabriel meant that he is glad to help but rather than go through the full explaination he suggests reading the help file and then come back with any further questions.
