Need ability to share sketch in machining environment

Status: Accepted
by *Expert Elite* on ‎12-18-2012 08:13 AM

When doing sketches in my parts, I like to include related geometry on one single sketch.  Then share the sketch if needed when I make the different features, i.e, two different tapped hole sizes.  Now in the machining environment, I can't share the sketch the same way.  I have to start a new sketch and project geometry from one sketch to the new sketch.


Makes it difficult later to make changes because you have hunt to find what is controlling the dimensions.


Why NOT have the same workflow?  This also makes it difficult for new users.

There's a whole bunch of places where the workflows don't match up, and it can get annoying to remember which thing you're in at any given time.  I'd like to see more uniformity in the workflow across the board with Inventor.
