I am currently working on producing a dynamic component for a hinge brace. It is a component I frequently use on projects as high level structural ties.
There is still a way to go but I am experiencing one or two issues that seem to be preventing the component from working properly.
I am currently driving the component off of the Y and Z dimensions taken from the ‘x_Welded hinge#1’ axis as this provides me with the height x length dimensions required to have the items fabricated (hinge bolt centre to centre). The problem I am having is when I input the dimensions, the box section ‘start’ position is moving away from where I would like it defined(centre point of the hole on articulated hinge part)
I believe it is something to do with the axis points set within the component levels but I really think I need some advice on this.
I haven’t done much in the way of dynamic components previously so please bare with me!
Please find example brace attached.
thanks in advance!
