Center point visibility : dwg import

372 Views, 8 Replies

I imported some dwg blocks into Inventor with the
idea that I use them in conjunction with other parts in an
assembly.

Having done so, I can't hide the center points. Any
suggestions? Am I missing something obvious? See attached view.

I need a cure for imeasles.

Hello,

There currently is no way to supress the visibility of the sketch point geometry but we are looking into the issue. Thank you!

Hello,

 

I got the same issue here, and i wonder if there is already a solution for this problem. (because the thread is from 2009). I'm using inventor 2013.

You could set Tools>Application Options>General tab to a real small value on Annotation Scale to make them less visible, but this will also make sketch dimension annotations very small.

I just found that by going to properties for the sketch into which you've imported the ACAD drawing, you can change lineweight and all the points become far less prominent.
