Basic Measuring?

Hi planetPTC,

I am creating an object, and I need to put in indents for fitting other pieces in.

I go to extrude -> placement -> define -> then I select the face, draw the rectangle, but it won't let me dimension and change the size on my sketch.

Any help is great.

Thanks.

Re: Basic Measuring?

PLease upload your model so we can assess what is happening!

Re: Basic Measuring?

I have worked it out by creating a large rectangle and then shortening it.

Here is the file, all I was trying to do was center it.

Re: Basic Measuring?

I can't open it because you are using schools edition unfortunately. It sounds like you might have use of the "symmetry" constraint. Take a look for that in the help file and perhaps this will help?

Re: Basic Measuring?

You can open it to view this model by using (for example) Creo View Express (http://www.ptc.com/products/creo/view/express/).

A screenshot of what is happening on your end might be helpful. Openning the file I don't see any problems like you're describing just an incomplete analysis feature.

Re: Basic Measuring?

I am now using creo parametric 1.0 schools edition and haven't had any trouble. Thanks
