trying to build a soccerball

Question asked by Maurits De Wolff on Dec 8, 2016



Watching an online instruction video on how to build a soccerball with pentagons and hexagons I get stuck halfway down the video. The pentagon is just rotated out of the plane of the hexagon (@4:23) for easy access to the mating faces I suppose.


When I hit the button Constraints in the lower left pane I don't get the options like I'm supposed to. Instead my pentagon rotates back into the plane of the hexagon. I cannot select any side face of the pentagon obviously. Is it possible to hide the hexagon? The video is from 2010 ( SolidWorks Tutorial - Design Football - YouTube ). I'm using 2016.


Thanks for any pointers.
