3D Sketch

187 Views, 3 Replies

Can you guys please fire the guy who programmed the 3D sketch tool? Its probably the worst tool I ever used and you can't really create a good constrained sketch with it. Nobody at this company or anyone I know, wants to use this due to its over complicated layout/lack of intelligence. I want to kill myself every time I need to use it.

 

Best Regards

3D sketches work fine.

Nearly every 3D sketch I create is actually constrolled with 2D sketches.

Very easy to create.

Very easy to control.

Very easy to edit.

Rock solid.

Well I've used this to create 3D sketches with Frame Generator but in this case I'm trying to create an pipe with complicated geometry. And that is not an easy task when you have to create an 2D sketch for every change of direction. 3D sketch should be able to be edited in a similar way as 2D sketches but it isn't even close. Maybe you can give me an link how to create an complicated pipe?

Works very easily here.  Post your example done your hard way.
