I'm using a template file (part with just a drawing in it) for the basis of a few parts.
In one of these parts I use the template sketch for an extrude. After that I would like to use it again for
some other extrude. But I can not reference the drawing again. Normally I can 'share'a sketch. But
somehow a sketch from a template file can not be shared. How can I use the template sketch for a second
Solved! Go to Solution.
I cannot reproduce this behavior.
What version of Inventor are you using?
Can you attach file here that exhibits this behavior?
I attached the part cab1_WheelSegment.ipt. This part uses the template part cab1_template_wheel.ipt for an extrusion. I want to do another (cut) extrusion, but I can not reference the Sketch anymore. I also see no possibility to share the sketch.
I also see no possibility to share the sketch.
Uhmmm, the sketch is already set as a Shared Sketch - that is what the hand symbol means. (start a new sketch and examine the different symbol in the browser)
I can use this Shared Sketch for additional features with no trouble.
Also, you might have a good reason in this case, but I normally recommend patterning features rather than sketch entiities.
I feel stupid! The visibility of the sketch was switched off! I didn't realize that you can not reference it for an extrude when switched off.
