I just got Inventor and am trying the tutorials. I am doing the constraint tutorial, but can't figure out how to show the grid. In sketch options panel it says that the grid is on. I have it in wireframe mode and the background is shades of grey.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by Nate711. See the answer in context.
All fixed. I didn't realize that the grid doesn't come up in non-sketch mode.
Are you in an active sketch? Post a screen shot.
(BTW - I turned off grid back in year 1987 of the last century and haven't used it since.)
In this document I recommend turning it off http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/skillsusa%20universit
I totally agree. I know of absolutly no productive user of Inventor that uses the grid. Last time I used it was also in 1987, where I needed an iso grid in AutoCAD in order to draw an isometric 2D view. After that torture, I never created a 2D ISO again....
If you are new to Inventor, try these settings for sketches:
What is an active sketch? I also found out that it won't let me drag a selection box. In my first post when I said shades of grey I meant the backgrounf was a grey gradient starting from light grey on the bottom left and dark on the top right. Why can't I get the normal white background?
