Frame gen

Hi guys
I am having troubles with a frame I did. I made a frame using frame generator and added parameters to it like width, length, etc. I also placed a lot more items as it is a cabin of a truck like, grill, plates, seats etc. What happened is that changes in the sketch of the frame doesn't affect the frame size itself. Do you have any suggestions what I might have done wrong.
Your help will be much appreciated!

In my experience in using the frame generator I have changed widths, lengths and the frame updated.

As far as new members I had to delete existing and then add new.  Now if yours is not reflecting length type changes maybe you need to fo a forced rebuild.

Also if you are changing frame member types you can RC on them and edit them that way.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks Jeremiah
I think my problem comes from constraining other parts/assemblies and these constraints get in conflict with the frame and I don't know which constraints I have to remove exactly...
