Thanks very much to both of you for taking the trouble to rework my model…sorry I thought I had replied already. It seems the answer to my original question is “no”…I need to have subs to control dimensions of things. Ive realised from both your replies that I need to think a bit harder about what to make a sub…the way you both approached sub selection was much clever than my first go…so thanks
I didn’t understand the scaling issue that PC highlighted…I don’t know why sktechup reports for e.g. the 40.032 cm. I suspect there is something fundamental here…is there a special way of setting scales, is it the way I drew the thing, or some other issues
I also didn’t understand PC’s post about using the outer shell. Have you got an example you can post. If you look at my next steps below my DC is going to get more complex soon, so if theres a way to keep it simple it would be good to know
I am in process of rebuilding my DC based on both your suggestions (in between other stuff) …I’ll post it when its done. My next step is to introduce a window which can change shape and location…including being on panel edge to create a U- or L-shaped panel. If I use one standard DC I’m going to have some subs that are 0mm wide…does that create a problem or do they just disappear.
thanks for all your help
