Showing Sketches in a Drawing of an iPart

283 Views, 3 Replies

I've created a scroll on a face (using a 2D equation curve and the sweep command). I'm trying to add a centre line on the drawing to aid clarity (see attached image). It seems the Centerline Bisector command will not work so I tried to show the sketch using "Get Model Sketches" but this will not work either. Does anyone know if this command is available when the component is an iPart as this is? If not any other ideas on an easy way to show this.

 

Many Thanks

Hi,

as far as I understand your request there is no way to create mid curve between two spirals.

Best regards,

Marian

Thanks for your reply Marian, my question was more aimed at showing sketches in the drawing though. It seems for an iPart member you cannot include any of the sketches in ta drawing of said part. Although it gives you the option to 'get model sketches' it would seem it doesn't allow you to view any of the sketches in the model tree to then include. I'm guessing this may just be another limitation of using iParts.

Hi,

I am wondering about this as well.  Does anyone have an answer?

Thanks,

Jacob
