When deleting bolted connections from my assembly using design accelerator I am left with black cross hairs where the connections used to be, I can't seem to delete these from my model either in the assembly itself or by editing the sketch, what are these, why are they left over from a deleted connection and how do I remove them ... ? ? Please can someone help ? Thanks
Can you post a screen shot? I'm not sure what these could be.
Please see attached screen shot of the leftover cross hairs.
These look like sketch points. Is there a sketch in one of your parts that has the visibility turned on?
The points are leftover from when a Bolted Connection was made that had to cut the holes into the assembly children. If you go to the child part and delete the hole (shown with a lock symbol from memory) this is when the points are left in the part. There doesn't seem to be a skecth to delete them from. Sometimes they are deleted and sometimes not. Often I just turn sketch visibility off. Sorry I have no perfect answer. If you get 1 let me know. I've been arguing with these things for years!
I have a solution for this to delete them, but not a permanent fix.
Edit the point sketch, then create a rectangle and extrude it, then delete the extrusion. It would remove the sketch too. Have to do this for each point.
Hi, thanks for this fix, I will try this on the model I am working on, I have quite a few of the crosshairs on the design so I may need to do this for every point like you suggested. Thanks again

I'm sure there is an easier way - attach your assembly here.
