I am using Inventor 2013. For some reason I cannot dimension some of the model entities in the drawing views in an idw file. I can retrieve the model dimensions but it is usually easier to create the dimensions I need in each view. This is the first time I have had this issue. What causes this? I can select the line, curve, etc. when dimensioning but nothing happens.
After I think about it. What I cannot dimension are lofts that I created with rails. These rails were made up of lines and curves, not polylines. How do I get the sketches for the rails I used for lofting to display in the drawing views so I can dimension those sketches.
I need to install update 2. I found a method that works, although it may not be the best. In the model tree, select the appropriate model sketch, rt mouse click, select include. I am then able to dimension the model sketch of the rails in the drawing view. Thanks for your help.
I'm sure Autodesk would like to see this dataset.
Can you attach the files here?
I will double check that. But it is just the lofted bodies that are giving me this problem. I figured out how to dimension the rails I sketched to guide the lofts in a drawing view and that is what is critical. These lofts are fairly complex, at least from my experience.
