    Auto sketch not working

    Alex Murphy

      Is autosketch something extra that you have to pay for? I have Solidworks Premium 2011 and I connot get the autoskect addon to work. I have selected it in the addon drop down menu and it never sticks and never brings up the extra pages when importing an image. Is there something that I am missing here?

          Do you have a picture or image inserted into your part?


          After you inserted your image, you select "AutoTrace", then you select the information you would like it to use to sketch.


          However, this might be good for crisp clear images, but when you use a non-crisp image, the lines become very sketchy. I found it was better just to draw it or use the sketch it comes up with as a guide line for my drawing.


          Hope this helps,
