Unable to Recognize Sketch Path In Assembly Layout

Question asked by Oliver Wolfond on Apr 15, 2019

I am creating an assembly layout using sketch blocks. One of my blocks has a cam component. The cam component has several line segments/curves that are tangential and have been assigned as a path within the context of the saved sketch block file. The cam block is inserted into the assembly layout sketch - when I try to mate the follower sketch block to the cam sketch block with a tangent relation, the path is not recognized, and tangency is only applied to a single segment.
In an attempted workaround, when I try to create the cam sketch geometry within the context of the assembly layout sketch, the option to create a path is not available. Is there a way to create a cam-follower in an assembly layout, or to create/work-with paths in assembly layout sketches?

 

Thanks,

Oliver
