Project sketches into a sketch

Bill has suggested Johan Jonker to project (several) sketches into a single one. Well, I also tried but I got an error. I have created a 2D sketch and tried to project several curves using "curves or boundaries" (using new algorithm). I got an error and no tips on how to deal with. Just "System.Exce...

Re: How to grab surface to limit calculation area?

Hello Billetgrip,
Your suggestion is good but I´ve being wondering...
We have handles to set limits. It should work...
Besides I am always trying to find a quicker solution and with less mouse clicks.
And to reduce number of mouse clicks in TopSolid is something that can be (or should be) done.

Need more parameters

Hi, If I am not wrong while NC Programming if I want to know what is thickness for a given (and already calculated) toolpath only way to know is to "edit" that toolpath and search for in "Seetings". There is a lot of parameters in main window "status (?) bar" where we can see things like "Descriptio...

Sketch / Grid: How to disable

Whenever I start a 2D or 3D sketch I have a grid!
I know that it is possible to "Modify Grid" (Type, Coordinates, spacing, etc).
Most of time I want "Type" = None.
I searched preferences and could not find it.
It is necessary to manually set to "none"?
