Problem with thickness

I created a part with revolve feature with thicken sketch in WF 5.0. The thickness is 4 mm. When I want to change the thickness to 2mm, I receive message that this is out of range 10.09-1462.67. How can I correct the feature's thickness?

Re: Problem with thickness

Hello

the problem is the accuracy. (ratio between dimensions) go to file->propriety->accuracy change it 0,0012 to may be 0,0008

regenerate and see what happens

best regards

Re: Problem with thickness

What Pierre is referring to is that you get into difficulty when there is a large relative disparity between the size of a feature and the overall size of the model. If changing the Relative value doesn't work, you can also try changing to Absolute accuracy.

Re: Problem with thickness

Just a little more detail, if you haven't done this before:

You change to Absolute through Edit/Setup/Accuracy, but in order to do this you need to set the config option enable_absolute_accuracy to YES. You can also set default_abs_accuracy to YES if you wish.

Re: Problem with thickness

Thanks David and Pierre,

I changed relative accuracy of part and reduce thickness without problem.
