You can add a smaller rectangle inside the Sketches named "bottomBodyEdge" and "Sketch003" to create the void. I wasn't able to get the Part WB > Thickness tool to work either.
Thank you bejant. I had just started to do that figuring why not just pad the correct shape to begin with and skip the thickness.
Not sure I'm clear. I've opened that in .18 and have none of the issues you see. Also I'm not sure how things are over constrained?openBrain wrote: ↑Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:19 pmHi,
Below is what I get when I just recompute all your project (with a 0.18 release) :
All your sketches are either redundantly or over constrained. This should be corrected first.
Also I would advise to apply fillets as latest operations as it is quite sensitive.
To achieve your hallow shape, maybe it could be easier to use an additive wedge then a substractive one.
EDIT : also notice that after recomputing, face numbering is changed thus it could explain why the Thickness fails.
When I open your file, I have an error set on the Body. Thus I mark all the tree for recompute, and then after recomputing I have what I attach.
You're welcome. I could do a Thickness selecting the top face but not when selecting both the top and bottom faces; the bottom face always remained. I did get some "Links go out of allowed scope" (I think that was the warning) in the Report view. Maybe setting the Property > Refine (from the Data tab) to True on the previous Features would help the Thickness tool work but I haven't tried that.
I didn't have what is shown in your image happen to me using 0.18; did you change your Edit > Preferences > Part Design > Automatically Refine settings?
In the history tree, look for a white exclamation point in a red circle to the left of your sketch names, or open the sketches and look at the Solve Messages and you'll see. Are you sure you used 0.18?
Same results here.openBrain wrote: ↑Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:36 pmWhen I open your file, I have an error set on the Body. Thus I mark all the tree for recompute, and then after recomputing I have what I attach.
When opening the sketches, FC will tell you what are the redundant/over constraints.
EDIT : after a quick check, I confirm that your sketches have constraint issues.
I never changed this kind of settings. But I indeed get a different behavior on my other PC (which has a slightly different build).bejant wrote: ↑Thu Feb 07, 2019 3:59 pmI didn't have what is shown in your image happen to me using 0.18; did you change your Edit > Preferences > Part Design > Automatically Refine settings?
