I was wondering if there is a way to tell what is under defined in a sketch other than the obvious of it being blue. The reason I ask is because I have a sketch currently that appears to be fully defined but Solid Works says otherwise.
Start grabbing endpoints and dragging them around. If defined, they won't move.
Do you have text in the sketch?
Can you do a snapshot of the sketch?
Pull and drag is common method, also you can turn on your relation nodes to help see.
You will get a note at the bottom of your screen saying that the sketch is underdefined, if it is so...!
Attach your file here and end all doubt.
Sometimes the sketch is fully defined but it's location may not be.
OK, a couple of things:
1) There is a possibility of an "unintentional" micro line: Tiny unintentional sketch lines
If this is the case, then using Repair sketch will locate it for you.
2) If there is text in the sketch, then Sketch Text is hard to fully define (even though it IS fully defined, Solidworks says that it isn't).
Fully define sketch text?
I've also seen files posted here with the same problem, that had multiple sketch points on top of each other. Some were fully defined and some weren't.
Dragging end points quickly found my problem. I totally forgot that was an option . There is no text in this but I have found it can be quite difficult to work wit.
