part intelligence

im trying to put partial intelligence on a simple part that is a 4in sq and 1in thick block. The block has .5 radius fillet,and a hole of 1in diameter on each corner.The problem is that i dont know the formula for keeping the hole on the same distance with the part when i change the demensions.

RE: part intelligence

Assuming your intention is to have the hole at the same distance from the sides of the part regardless of the hole size all you have to do is create dependencies btw the hole radius and the part sides.
Take a look at
It keeps the hole at .175in from part sides.
To display "Parameters & Relations" go to:
  check "With Value" & "With Formula"
Tools/Options/Infrastructure/Product Structure/
  Specification tree
     check "Parameters" & "Relations"

Hope this will point you in the right direction.
