Inventor 2011 will not offset polygon in sketch mode. I get "Method not supported for transient meta" error message. How do I fix this problem? Or what am I doing wrong?
Select offset, right-click a line, make sure loop select is checked. If you still have the problem attach the ipt and i'll take a look since am running 2011 and can offset polygons or any shape just fine.
left off constraints to show offset lines easier.
Possibly in the Offset, a segment of the line is becomming small enough to that it can no longer exist. This could be the problem as well.
As Blair remarked that is one of the most common problems. Did you make the polygon manually or use the polygon shape tool?
i just had this happen about 2 minutes ago on a simple circle of all things, using inv 2014.
i had to restart inventor and now it is fine.
btw, i have never ever seen this error before now. i was about to post and see if it was a new bug but saw someone else with the same issue on inv 2012 so i cancelled the post, to then see this one running.
Had that happen to me before with projected geometry, but at the time was new to Inventor so just thought it was me. Of course since then have done it many times without any problems, so expect its just one of those rare occurrances that glitch out.
drafdog, have you tried making a new polygon and offsetting it in a completely new sketch? Just to see if it works or not?
Why haven't you attached the ipt file here?
