I have a sketch as a top level feature in an assembly, and I'm using it (via a WAVE link) to create another component in the assembly. I'm trying to understand some behavior I'm seeing.
If I edit the sketch (without rollback) I see the profile but can not actually edit any of the geometry. However, if I "edit with rollback" I can actually edit the geometry. Why the difference? In a regular part (component) model, I can use either to edit a sketch profile. But for some reason it's working differently here.
Thanks for any help with this.
The attached image explains to you what the difference between the two methods.
With the simple edit you have many difficulties to select or add new entities.
This is just one example.
I have set in the customer default the automatic editing with rollback because in that way I can have the project always under control.
You'll find that NX is a very complex and powerful cad. Historically the rollback has replaced the procedure: make current feature >>> edit features.
The workstations of the past were much less powerful than now and then edit the features in that way was very expensive.
There are also other aspects of rollback, one of these is the one shown in the picture that I attach.
