Edit sketch in Task Environment

Pioneer

Hi everyone,

 

I seem to have gotten the hang of sketching in Task Environment.
What bothers me however is when I edit my sketch - it goes into Direct Sketching. This means all projections are outside the sketch, etc. Can I change this?

 

Thanks.

Like Cesare and Elljay are saying is that you can set the change to open in task environment.


But what do you mean by projections are outside the sketch?
are you meaning projected curves or something else.

Yes, sometimes they are seen as separate features, which i don't understand.

When working in the sketch environment, there is a "project curve" command, these curves will be created as sketch curves and live in the sketch. There is also a "project curve" command that you can use outside of the sketch; these curves can be created as associative/unassociative and will not be part of a sketch (the associative option will create a project curve feature in your model tree). Perhaps you have one or more of the non-sketch "project curve" features in your model?

Cowski, thats was also what i was thinking about.

 

some people use the feature projected curves when they don't need the curves for a sketch or get

non-associative curves to extrude a solid from.

It's also possible to use booth methods trough each other.

 

only when you need the projected curves in a sketch then i preferred to use the projected curve command in the sketcher.
