Hi all, I'm trying to make a derived sketch to copy onto the opposite and. The the boat hull tutorial from the advanced part modelling exercise if that helps?! Any help and tips would be greatly appreciated. Andy
Are you able to save the sketch as a library feature and place it in the design library?
Then insert it and disolve it?
please see attached
Which sketch are you trying to copy, and where are you copying it to?
Have you tried simply converting the entities into a new sketch?
These are the steps I used to create this file.
Then with the design library still nailed down I started a new part
and draged the feature only and got the part file I am attaching.
Hi, ive followed the steps and made a copy in the design libary, but i still cant seem to mirror the projected curve about the "right" plane.............
thanks for your help guys.
I am sorry that you were not able to get what you needed. The mirror functionality
in Solidworks has left a lot of people frustrated over the years so you are not alone.
Ive given up and luckily able to just to it in two halves, and mirror the lofted part.
jus come across a little issue - I cant thicken a surface loft. pic attached. I can send the part if it helps?
The offset surface intersects itself (bottom RH corner). Add a radius to the original surface, and size it larger than the offset (thickness).
I tried all your points, but still didnt work?!
ive attached the part encase im missing the point?
When the modify sketch dialog box comes up, there will be in the feild of drawing a black origin indicator. If you right-click on one of the axes of the origin indicator, it will flip the sketch about the other axis (so right-clicking the horozontal axis will flip the sketch about the vertical and vice-versa)
You have to do this before you add any external relations.
Give it a try.
Creating a derived sketch requires preselecting the sketch and the plane.
Select the sketch and control select the plane you want to copy the sketch to. Insert->Derived Sketch.
