Interesting Problem

My coworker has an assembly that when you open it none of the parts show up, and Solid Edge ST9 in stuck in sketch mode.  I can turn on the sketches and see them, but the parts are not visible, and it will not close out of the sketch mode.  However, when he edits the assembly from a higher level assembly everything functions normally.  He just cannot open the assembly and work on it.  Very odd.  Even saving the assembly as a new name doesn't solve the problem.  Any ideas on how to get this to work without building an entire new assembly?

Insert the error assembly into a new assembly and transfer the parts and subassy's to the new assy... save and delete the defective assy from the "new"assy.

I was going to suggest the same when I seen you post and made me think of a long awaited enanchment.

 

It would be great if the "Disperse" command would keep the all the patterns as is instead of flat them all.

I had a similar problem in ST7 and 3D sketch.

When SE crashed while editing a 3D sketch I would be in a rolled-back situation (as if I'd used 'Go To') and unable to edit later 3D sketches.

 

This was the solution -

  1. Open the assembly and edit the 3D sketch.
  2. Save then close file while still in sketch mode (need to use the window X to close)
  3. Re-open the assembly – the 3d sketch is now OK.

maybe you could try 2 & 3, as you are already in sketch mode when the file opens.

Hi @mdamson

 

 

what You also can try is to rename the config file for that assembly (You also can delete it, but if this would not help You can go back easier) and then try to open it again.

 

Sometimes this has helped in similar situations for me.

Hi @mdamson

 

Try to create new window.

Go to View Tab and then select New Windows. After that, close the older window and save the actual.

 

We had similar issues in the past and most of them were resolved doing that.

 

Hope it helps.
