Parametric U bolt

I am trying to create a parametric 'U' bolt to add to standard parts without any success.
The insertion point is as shown on the sketch and the constraints are prefixed 'P'
Any tips?

thx

  • The easiest approach is to _DmDistance3d constrain key subentities to the planes of the WCS. You do not need to add a 'helper' solid at the origin. You will probably need to add a 5th parameter: the radius of the bend. But perhaps that parameter will have a fixed relation with P4.

    I am attaching my attempt (I have used V18.2.20), but I think you would learn more if you try this yourself first.

    Question: is there a way to constrain 2 circular edges so that they remain co-planar?
