I've been working on this enclosure for a couple of days.
Ive noticed that there is this Bracket, red pencil, Bracket next to the sketch name.
I cannot find anything about in the help section, google is not my friend on this one, and there is nothing that I could find within the community. Maybe I am first?
Anyway any help to shed on this would be ideal for me to try to figure out how to get rid of it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
that is the underconstrained sketch indicator.
you can set this to be on or off is SE Options -> General -> "Indicate under-constrained profiles in Pathfinder"
This "red pencil" indicated under constrained profiles.
This can be turned on/off in Settings -> Options-> General -> Indicate Under-Constrained Profiles in PathFinder
how do we contrain the sketch, everything I have tried will not constrain it. It is a simple 5/16 circle that is being used as an etch mark on a sheet metal. I have a couple of enclosures that are like this.
shutting down the program and booting it back up,
shut down the computer and restarting it
deleting the sketch and replacing back in
applied dims such as diameter and distance bewteen
all of these have left my dims blue instead of black.
I am lost on this
As a bit of a bonus,
I have researched some of the older models and have come across driven and driving dims
All of the model sketches were used and placed using the sketch mode along with peers, placing certain 5/16 circles in varous places and creating dims on that peice only. The diameter dims would be in black, and there would be a square in the middle of the circle. The other dims that I put in there are the measurement from top to bottom and left to right dims showing exact locations if neeeded. Those dims are blue.
However it did not effect the sketch to make it bad. Even now, some of the dims are still blue and some black.
The more that we know......
