I've been struggling with this problem for some time now, so thought I'd ask
if anyone knows the solution. Sometimes, I move the sketch coordinate
system with no problem at all. Other times, I can NOT make it move no way.
For example, I just began a new assembly, creating parts in place, and on
the first grounded part, I moved the sketch coordinate system on several
sketches without problems. I moved it so I could predictably insert AutoCAD
.DWG into the sketch, and it worked beautifully. I've done this many times
before, so I know it can work. I then created several more parts, with
geometry projected from the first part. I then began a fourth part,
projected some geometry, and tried to move the sketch coordinate system.
Now, what I just did awhile ago WILL NOT WORK. I've tried everything -
closed Inventor, re-booted, started a simple .IPT , etc... I can select the
coordinate system Origin, and the next prompt ask me to "Select a Vertex,
Circular Edge, Workpoint, or Sketchpoint", but NOTHING seems to be
Please, has anyone else seen this? What am I missing?
Have you though about moving the autocad sketch after inserting it. That is
the easiest way to deal with it. That is what I do. I never bother moving
the coordinate system. Too aggravating.
