Unable to keep mid rail in center of the door
« on: March 16, 2015, 05:37:00 am »
Dear All,

Here is an issue which I am not able to resolve. In attached file, I am trying to build a dynamic block of a door section. Door is 5mm off from the opening frame and there are also intermediate spacing within the door frame.

The expected result would be: Mid rail to should stay in the center of the door, without affecting in-between spacing, no matter how far we stretch. Our standard door size ranges from 900mm to 3000mm height.

Any kind of help or hint will be appreciated.

Regards,
Nirav

Hi mjfarrell,

Thanks for your hint. Your link shows the way that I have used to create block of top section of the door. Top section being simple than side section, was easily created by me. Side section has too many parts connected at specific distance, involve complex geometric and dimensional constraints, which in return makes hard to stretch the overall block.

Hi all,
Finally, I got successful in making dynamic block of door section.

Lessons I learnt:
KEEP THINGS AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE.
TRY TO AVOID CONSTRAINTS WITH STRETCH ACTION AND IF THERE IS NO WAY, TRY TO WORK OUT WITH COINCIDENT AND CO LINEAR ONLY.
STRETCH ACTION DOES NOT NEED DIMENSIONAL CONSTRAINTS, AS IT MAINTAINS THE SPACING ITSELF.

Good luck.
Regards.
