Hi, I've been trying to assemble something I considered quite simple, but apparently Solid Edge isn't having it.
I have a frame, constructed of a 3D Sketch and a lofted profile. I am trying to create a cylindrical mate between the two components shown below. The purple colored area is where i'm trying to create the mate. The purple area is straight and should be cylindrical. Is there a way to create an axis to reference the cylindrical mate?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've ran into this too. Only it was on swept protrusions, even though the profile was a circle and the section was straight, it wouldn't treat it as a cylinder.
So, I kept trying stuff, and figured it out.
In the assembly dialog bar, select Assemble - Options, select Linear Edges. I can now select that sketch I create to act as an axis for the cylinder.
