Relations in Family Table


New member
Hi Everbody,

I want to know if it is possible to create a family table using relation so that I can have a complete Parametric Assembly ready with me.

Also if I create two features uing relations i.e. for e.g. d2=d1/2 where d1 is the distance of the first feature from a reference & d2 is the distance of the second feature from the same reference.Now if I suppess the first Feature Why second Feature is not getting suppessed.

The second feature is not being suppressed because it is not dependant on the first feature's geometry. If you were to project an edge belonging to the first feature as a reference in the second feature's section and place a sketch point on it (so it's used) then suppressing the first feature would cause suppression of the dependant second feature.
