My textbook say its in insert/surface/knit but I don't see it there. I'm in an assembly.
Edit a part in the assembly and you will see it.
In the part file.
It's not anywhere in the assembly?
Surface Tool Bar/Surface Knit
Where is the surface tool bar? It's not with the assembly layout sketch etc. even if I right click to add more toolbars. It's also not with File edit view etc.
Selecting layer doesn't add a surfaces toolbar
If right it is not available in an Assembly. But it is in an a part.
Yes, you have to be either editing a part (in the assembly) in context or have a part open separately:
Or, alternatively, you can RMB on the tabs (while you are in a part) and select the "Surfaces" tab to turn it on,
OR (and I LOVE this feature):
Select "Command" in the search function at the top and type in "knit", then select
Then select the "Show command location" button
And you get this handy little red arrow pointing out where it is:
found it. Thanks
It's right where your textbook says it is, but that's only for working in a Part file.
The only way you can use the feature in an Assembly would be to edit a Part within an Assembly (right-click on the Part in the Assembly tree or graphics area and choose the "Edit Part" icon). Either your textbook left that out, or you missed it.
