I made two slots in the button. I want them to both be on the same face. I tried convert entities, but it didn't work. When I click on the face to make the sketch it won't make a new sketch.
While John's post is likely easiest for ideal design, I made this simply upon your existing model, without rearranging or combining things.
Select Sketch6 and Button face. Add a new Split Line (Projection). Done.
I am confused by Sketch7, and believe it can go away (deleted).
BTW, the face is not planar, so a 2D sketch cannot be moved to or created on it. The Split Line as you have already implemented once is the way to go. Either combine the slots into one sketch, or make two separate Split Lines.

You need to add that Slot Sketch to "Sketch5" then it will show up in the Split line feature ....
How do I do that? I can't seem to get it to work with convert entities.
Open up Sketch5
and Add It (the other curved slot)
- you can have multiple profiled sketches in one sketch....
Edit sketch plane
it won't let me chose split line 1 as the sketch plane. That's the face I want both slots to be on.
You can edit Sketch5 and add the slot there.....
Eric,, I did convert entities in a new sketch. For some reason convert entities doesn't like the slot feature so I picked the outer edge and selected chain. Then did another split line.
That worked. Thanks.
Good Call Tom. I hadn't even noticed sketch 6.
LOL - way to go Tom - add a picture and you stole the show, good for you, he couldn't read my reply...........
I read your reply. I just didn't get how to add it.
More of a dig at Tom Gagnon - don't want to mean any harm - sometime the days are too long
What am I chopped liver
If OP is happy, then it works. All can help.
I was trying your way and couldn't figure it out. I didn't just ignore anyone that tried to help. It's just toms way is what I understood and it worked,
Thats fine, just having fun with you.
