I am trying to copy & paste an existing sketch from
autocad to sw2008. When I paste it into an active sketch and then
try to fix points or add relations Solid Works gives me a message
that automatic solve has been turned off. When I go to sketch
settings to turn it back on it is checked as if it is on but the
command is greyed out and it will not allow me to turn it back on.
Has anyone else run into this problem. Nothing I have tried had
worked and it would take me way to much time to draw this sketch
When trying to create solid models from sketches imported
with AutoCAD, I strongly suggest putting the imported AutoCAD data
in one sketch (you can let it have automatic solving off). Then
create another sketch and use "convert entity", or just redraw
lines, using the other sketch as reference. This will create a
sketch that can easily be modified to make it extrude/build
properly into a 3D part.
