Sketch on path reorientation problem

Pioneer

Hello, I can't change the orientation of a sketch on path after the sketch has been created.

 

Steps to reproduce:

 1. Create line:

 2. Create Sketch on Path on this line, dont' change the orientiation:

3. The orientation is as expected, but not what I want:

4. Reattach Sketch, select the X axis to define the horizontal sketch orientation. The gold axes on the sketch look correct:

5. The orientation did not change:

 How to fix this?

you can double click the X-vector and it will reverse the direction.
this is also for the Z & Y vector.

if you start the create sketch dialog you can position the sketch origin as needed before clicking OK.

The three axes cannot partially change, they represent, as you know, the tangent, normal and binormal to the curve, in addition to the horizontal reference try changing the 'plane orientation'.

Yes, everything works as it should when creating the sketch for the first time, but not when reattaching the sketch.

did you try to also change the orientation of the plane?

The plane orientation should be Normal to Path. No matter how I change the axes, the orientation never changes the way I want. However, this might be a bug with the 11.0.1 version, if there are no problems with the other versions.

did you send this to GTAC?

Not yet, checking to see if there was anything that I'd overlooked.

JRW - can you please confirm you are seeing this in NX 11.0.1?

 

It looks from your picture where you show the reattach dialog that the Sketch Orientation Horizontal Reference is not being stored (no green check mark) - can you confirm this?

 

Thanks,

Yes, 11.0.1. There is a checkmark. Everything looks fine up to this point. But after pressing OK, the orientation changes to what it was before, with the X axis pointing up.
