I start training myself on Fusion 360 with glowforger’s tutorials. Great job really!!! Thanks for all. I must say I am a complete new user on this software so I start with the basics.
I become able to do a finger joined box quite quickly. And to use the powerfulness of parametric software, i used all parameters for my box. I was proud of me at the end.
But, then, i had a bad surprise when I wanted to change one parameter to see if my box would adapt correctly. And the answer is NO. I think i have found from where comes the problem but I don’t know how to fix it.
Explanations on my making process:
First, I do the box’s bottom (easy)
Then I make a copy of this to make the top and translate with a “height - thickness” distance (easy too)
Then I make a side of the box. (easy too)
At this point, if I change width or depth. It’s perfect. My object adapts correctly to new variables. The problem is when I change thickness or height. For exemple, if I change height, here is the new object:
So the problem is the distance used during the copy process. Even if I write parametric values, it seems that it calculates this value and transform it in a constant value. So when I change height, the distance between the two copies doesn’t adapt with the new height’s value.
I have tried the two ways to do copies mentionned in one of tutorials but it is the same.
I don’t see where is my mistake. I’m sure it is just a little something but I can’t see what?
Does anyone knows?
Thanks for all your work on tutorial folks. It’s really great.
