Sketch Point style

Status: New Idea
by GNR88 on ‎06-17-2014 03:30 AM

In the sketch environment it would be really great to be able to change the Point Style (similar to AutoCAD) so that when the point is placed at an intersection (Right) of two lines it can still be seen (example Left). I use points often to help with placement of multiple holes.

It helps if you set your construction lines to construction. Then you can easily see the center point on top of them.

Using construction lines is a good idea, except where the lines form part of a profile for other geometry or features, for example when using the rib command the points define bosses and the lines defing the ribs. constuction lines in this case cannot be used

But the center marks are automaticly picked up by the feature so I don't understand why?

The center marks are only picked up if the lines they are constrained to are part of the profile for the ribs
