Re: New sketch on XZ Plane - puts me on wrong side

09-18-2003 12:16 AM in reply to: *mvier40
I have not been able to duplicate this.... are you using a default
template, or one you have created?

Here's what I tried...

1. Set Tools > App Options > Part to Sketch on XZ Plane. Open
standard.ipt. Do Look at and select XZ from Origins. + Z is coming
towards me, with Xaxis (red) to the right, and extrude default always
goes in the +Z direction.

2. Set Tools > App Options > Part to Sketch on XY Plane(Default). Open
standard.ipt. Close and delete original sketch. Create New Sketch on XZ
Plane. Do Look at and select XZ from Origins.
+ Z is coming towards me, with Xaxis (red) to the right, and extrude
default always goes in the +Z

What are you doing differently?

The sketch I am doing is the second in the part. I start off on sketching on
the xy plane. Then when I select the XZ plane, that's when it does it. I
don't wish to begin my part on the XZ plane.

Try this:
1. Start a new part, sketch and extrude a simple shape on the XY plane.
2. Select the XZ plane in the origin folder, create a new sketch.
3. Bingo.

What is the possibility of them normalizing on their own without
intervention? Say when you upgrade to 8??

I just found I had to sketch on the XY plane. Now that one does it right -
the Y indicator points to the right!!! Wierd.

It does happen... and upgrades are a VERY nervous time when it comes to
migrating stuff over.

This issue is still not fixed in Inventor 2013.

 

How much do we pay for this program?!

Maybe this helps, you can change you're front by right clicking the cube(with the views front,back,right,etc on it) in the right-corner or reset yout front, the x,y,z axis will also change.

Resetting the cube front doesn't make any difference if you want to sketch on the XZ plane.  You can see in the pic below the part X axis is pointing left, the sketch x axis is pointing right and the cube has spun to show back.  I don't know what's more ridiculous, the fact that Inventor does this or that fact that it hasn't been addressed in the 9 years since the OP.

iCloud is more important than logical spatial relations behaviour!

I agree 100%. It's been way way too long with this mess.
