Sketch Contraint Line Color

329 Views, 8 Replies

Hello,

I have been using Inventor 2010, my sketches no longer change color when they are fully constrained anymore (to blue). I can't figure out what option fixes this. Anyone have an answer for this?

Thanks

Attached is a square that should be constrained about the origin, however, all lines are still green.

Thanks

Have you verified that it is constrained? Did you Show All constraints? Does the prompt in lower right corner of screen indicate that it is fully constrained? Have you fooled with Constraint Persistence?

No file attached?

Try right clicking on the filename and select Send to Compressed (zipped) folder and attach the resulting *.zip file here.

Check your Constraint Persistence.

>Attached is a square

Are you aware that a sketch polygon requires the addition of one horizontal or one vertical (or other appropriate constraint) to be fully constrained?

Here's a video from my upcoming "Creative Design With Autodesk Inventor"
course" due out the first of the new year covering Inventor 2010 and
2011. The sound portion of this video is not available as yet, but it
should help. There are programmed pauses in this video, so when the
video stops, ht the play button again.
