Hello, I am having trouble with an assembly. I am attempting to connect a part with a sketch, however the sketch doesn't update when I move the part, is there any way to fix this?
I'm assuming you have the sketch in the assembly, and it has relationships to a part within the same assembly? If so, after moving the part what happens if you hit Ctrl+Q (force rebuild)?
Yes, it is a sketch in the assembly and i made the sketch coincident to both of the parts as shown. When I move either of the parts, the sketch doesn't follow unless I rebuild (force rebuild). Shouldn't the line follow the sketch without the rebuild?
I guess I am really asking whether or not it is possible to make solid works update continuously?
In this instance, no. You'll need to rebuild the sketch after moving the parts. Were it a part to part mate, they'd move dynamically.
Well I also attempted to do a similar setup, but instead of using a sketch I used another part, the only problem was that the angle of the lines wouldn't change. This resulted in the parts not moving as all.
What is it that you're actually trying to do?
Essentially this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uej5ZJQk-XA
From what I can tell, the sketch is external to the assembly but he edits it within the assembly. The sketch would also have external references to the pieces it's attached to in the assembly.
I don't have the time to test it out, but I'm pretty sure that's what he's doing in the video.
I think the sketch in that video probably requires a rebuild to update as well. But if you run an animation SW will rebuild for every frame of it. That's why it looks like that in the video. Notice how the SW border disappears when the video shows the motion. That is because the video switched to the animation output, not a SW screen being dynamically dragged.
