    converted silouette edge problem

    John Kreutzberger
      I have been on sp2 for a week. Today I have started seeing odd things with converted silouette edges. I will convert one in a new sketch-then trim it to another line and all of a sudden it jumps to the opposite side of the part. I also saw this happen after I had (I thought) forced it to stay in place and then it jumped anyway when I closed the sketch. The part I am converting edges from is a native SW part, so imported geometry is not an issue.

      My var is very resistant to confirming bugs, so I am hoping that I don't need to deal with them. Has anybody else gotten an spr on this one?

          No SPR, but I've been seeing this occasionally ever since they added the ability to directly reference silhouette edges and vertices (2003? 2001+?). These relations just go dangling a lot too. Anyhow, the workarounds vary. Sometimes underlying sketch geometry is handy, so I use that. In other cases, I can move some sketch geometry into a convenient location, or I have to make some construction geometry. Anyhow, it's because of this unstable behavior that I shy away from silhouette relations unless the geometry is very stable. I got tired of going back to repair it every other rebuild.
