In one part I have a sketch in which the dimensions are established by several equations. I want to copy this sketch, with the equations, into another part. How can this be done?
I'm not sure how to do that but can you save a copy of the part (with new name) and then edit/use that new part containing the required sketch.
Perhaps I should explain what I'm really trying to accomplish. The source file is a sketch of a company logo that is usually engraved into a part. The logo's size varies depending on the part. By using equations, once I set the logo's height, all of its other dimensions change as well. If I set the proper height in the source document and then copy the sketch into the target document, I get an underdefined sketch that won't move. So, is there a way to import the fully-defined logo sketch in other parts?
Not with equations (in case there is a way to do it, I don't know)
The other option might be convert the sketch into block and keep in library from where you can drag drop into part/drawings and scale them up or down as required. Finally use as required.
I've tried using a block and it's not bad except for one problem. To show the engraving of the logo, I usually define a profile and then make a swept cut using the sketch's lines as the path. I have to explode the block to do this. Once the block is exploded, I'm left with an underdefined sketch and this just doesn't seem like good practice.
After you explode it, area select the whole sketch and Fix everything. Now somebody will have to work a bit to screw it up.
