mapping of lines in sketch

Pioneer

Hi,

 

Is there a way I can map a line to a new line inside sketch.

 

For examble, I have few lines in sketch 1, which i had used for constraints and dimensions in skectch 2.

now I have decided not to have dimensional and constraint reference to external sketch. So i'm creating lines in same position and making it collinear with the sketch 1. But there are so many dimensions and constraints also need to be mapped now.

 

If NX has a functionallity of line mapping kind, I can say which line is for which of the old line, and all the relevant constraints and dimensions would be mapped here.

 

Is there any of such kind options ?

 

or any altrnate approach "?

 

thanks !

You can copy the curves from a sketch to another sketch (geometric constaints will be included) but the dimensions will not be copied. You need to re-create them.

Hi Sathya,

Not sure if this is going to work for you.

Use a REUSE 2D section (sketch) to create a reuse library member.

Next time you need to start a new sketch (where you wish the mapping to be done)....just drag and drop this sketch. It will give you option to retain the expressions used in the orfginal sketch and references also.

Go inside this sketch and create you new sketch entities (delete what is not neccessary and retain what else is required)
