somehow save it with a name, then open a new or existing part file and
import that saved sketch. Is there a way to do this? Also, can you
make blocks, as we could in AutoCAD, in Inventor?
I just wanted to know if you could make sketches in one part or file,
somehow save it with a name, then open a new or existing part file and import that saved sketch. Is there a way to do this?
At least two ways.
1. RMB on the sketch in the browser in first file select Copy - then start a new file and RMB select Paste.
2. If the sketched is unconsumed in the first file (and you can always leave the sketch unconsumed by simply projecting the original to a new sketch and use that to create your features) then you can derive the original unconsumed sketch into another part. With this method if you make a change to the first it is updated in the derived (unless you break the link).
I think the question was simple and it has common sense thing. You work and make sometime a sketch and you think: WOW this sketch I want use someday in the future, 5 minutes or 5 days/months, not important- first thing you think let''s save it!. That was the meaning of the question, Something what proe does since long long time ago!
