Curve thru XYZ issue

Question asked by Owen Long on May 27, 2015
Latest reply on May 29, 2015 by Owen Long



First time post and
fairly new solidworks user so please don’t take for granted that I might know

Running solidworks 2014.

I’m trying (without success)to insert a curve thru XYZ points and place the curve on a model so I
can extrude cut it into the face of a part.

When inserting the curve and trying to bring it into a sketch on the plane I want it at, I open a
new sketch and select “”convert entities” but I get an error that say’s “one or
more the selected entities could not be projected into the sketch plane”.

What might be wrong?

Without having the curve in a sketch I can’t extrude it.

I’m I doing it wrong?

I DO NOT want to have to manually input the xyz location for 3000 points.


Any and all help
would be very much appreciated.
