Gridlines change when zooming & moving project even when Grid is "Fixed"

I am trying to use program Autodesk Fushion 360.  I am having an issue where the gridlines behind my project [which is a 3d dove] keep changing where the edges of my project line up on the grid when zooming in and when using my mouse to move my project on my screen, to the center, left, right, up & down. I used this program 2 years ago and didn’t have this issue. I will include the different settings I have tried below. I am doing a 30-day trial, so I don’t have a lot of time to figure out how to fix this issue. Thank you for any help.

 

I have tried selecting all of the following and different combinations of the following…

  1. Layout Grid
  2. Layout Grid Lock
  3. Snap to Grid
  4. Incremental Move

Under Grid Settings, I have tried….

  1. Adaptive
  2. Fixed
  3. Major Grid Spacing 1in
  4. Minor Subdivisions 5 [sq per 1in]

Under Document Settings > Units

  1. Unit Type [Set to 1inch]

Nothing seems to fix this issue. thanks so much!

Hi,

I can tell you that I have been working with Fusion for 7 years now and stopped using the grid 6.5 years ago because it takes away my focus on the essentials, the construction.

Grid designing, as already mentioned, limits your design capabilities.  There are a few applications where it may help, in that case the attached video will show you how to setup a Sketch Grid to the spacing you desire, make it Fixed and even Snap to Grid if desired.

Thank you for your video! Yes, I am doing more art-E work, so a gridline does help, even though they are a pain.  I am not sure if I am just not seeing it, but I cannot find the "sketch" or "sketch palette." I see the gridline settings and select "fixed" and the size of the larger gridline boxes, and the number of smaller boxes per larger grid box. Online said the "Sketch palette" should be to the right of the screen. If it has been condensed there should be an arrow to click on to get "sketch palette" to pop up. It is not there. I have attached screenshots that show that "Sketch" or Sketch Palette" or its arrow is not there. The only thing that states "Sketch" is on the left-hand side under the "Browser" tab. I am really new to this program, but I am trying to learn. thank you for any help you can offer.

The Sketch Palette is shown when you enter a Sketch in the Design Environment only.  In your first attached screen capture, you are in the Animation Environment.  In the Animated GIF below, I emphasis the Design Environment, then create a Sketch on the X-Y Plane and this shows the Sketch palette.  There is a possibility, if you have two monitors, that you have move the Sketch Palette off screen.  To get it back, close Fusion 360, and follow the Animated GIF and you should see it again.

THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH! I was in the Design Environment, in one of the attachments. However, I didn't know that after selecting "Design Environment" I needed to click on "Create Sketch" and then Click on the Sketch it's self to get "Sketch Palette" would pop up. I got this Dove most made, i just needed to pose it and make changes to it. thank you for your help and videos! You are the Best!
