I have just started SolidWorks Tutorials>Building Models>3D Sketching. I have reached the page titled "Using Sweep to Complete the Feature". It reads:
1. Select the Right plane in the FeatureManager design tree, the click Sketch (Sketch toolbar) to open a 2D sketch on that plane. I do this.
2. Sketch a circle 5mm diameter circle at the origin at the origin. I do this also (using Sketch Smart Dimension).
3. Click Exit Sketch (Sketch toolbar). I can find the "Sketch" icon in the upper left corner of the Sketch toolbar. I cannot find an "Exit Sketch" icon anywhere. I click the "Sketch" icon and nothing appears to happen. I type the escape key to leave Sketch.
4. Click Swept Boss/Base (Features toolbar). Now I know I'm in trouble. When I go to the Features toolbar the Swept Boss/Base icon along with most (not all) of the Features toolbar icons is grayed out (not available). What is happening and what should I do?
