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?
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'.
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.
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?
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.
