Can anyone tell me the last 2 dimensions on a revolved part. Its just that i like to know for sure that everything in a sketch is fully constrained. -- James Robertson (MEDIA MANGER) Zeroth Technology Ltd Unit 11 Blackburn Ind Est Kinellar Aberdeenshire AB21 0RX TEL: +44(0)1224 790330 FAX: +44(0)1224 790430 www.zertech.com

If you're wondering why a seemingly fully constrained sketch lists 2 remaining constraints, it's because the sketch needs a Fix constraint somewhere, or needs to be dimensioned or constrained to something at a fixed location such as a projected center point or axis. While it may be fully internally constrained, the whole sketch is still "floating."

If you did not constrain part of your sketch to the origin, it would be the distance from the origin.

Try clicking-hold drag on an entity or endpoint in your sketch. It if moves it is not fully constrained. As the others noted make the Center point visible and project it to your sketch. You can drag an endpoint of your sketch to this point to make the two points co-incident.
