I was going thru some tutorials to refresh myself and I need some help.
In my other cad program, I can move sketches (geom) around utilizing the mid point between lets say mid points of 2 lines and move the sketch (geom) to its new home, very easy and fast.
So when I was working through this tutorial, it stated that I could draw the sketch off to one side. Which I did but when I was ready to position it at the location required as shown in pic. I could not find a way to do this without adding a reference line and utilizing its mid point to position the sketch properly and the tutorial didn't explain how to do this.
Am I missing something or is it just not a click click to position sketches (geom) in Solid Edge
Thanks for your time
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can use horizontal/vertical alignments also as long as the sketch entities are positioned so that the software will recognize the proper alignments.
Thank You to all!
I have read almost every tutorial there is and I have watched tons of videos and I have saved off a lot of them for future reference. I have also gone thru the full SolidMastermind series and all the Solid Edge Corp tutorials over the last couple of years and I totally missed this technique somewhere.
This is such a simple thing but it is so so important to know this simple task for my overall effectiveness in part creation, especially now that I own my seat of the Classic version. Terminology between cad programs tend to blur sometimes and my old habits seem to get in my way.
This isn’t the only thing that has tripped me up but I’m getting much more comfortable with Solid Edge which is a big step up from my bread and butter cad program Keycreator
Like Bruce suggested, you can use alignment indicaters to move and also when creating sketches, as this video shows:
@Tushar, That's good. I've never used the indicators to establish a "from" position like in the video.
