How to rotate in a sketch?

I have a shape in a sketch that I'd like to rotate 180 degrees (effectively around the Z axis). How can I do this? There are no obvious tools in the sketcher interface. For a simple shape it could be manually copied with the rotation applied, but this gets rapidly out out hand. Thanks in advance, Fr...

Re: Engrave a sketch?

Interesting. I created a new file containing the body, sketch and job. Created the job with just the sketch and didn't select anything when I created the engrave operation. While the simulation was quite slow, the gcode seemed sensible for the most part. I would not have thought of that approach at ...

Re: Engrave a sketch?

"You have to move the sketch out of the body." I figured out how to do that - I need to detach it from the face, so there are no solids to select when creating the job (with the sketch selected), just the sketch. After detaching the sketch it still appears to be part of the body, however. Thanks! Ho...

Re: Engrave a sketch?

Sorry - I can't select the grid sketch. Only solids are available. If I edit the job to remove the solid and select the model, it still doesn't work. I can select grid lines in the base geometry of the engrave operation, but can't add them.

Again, thanks for the suggestion.

Update operation base geometry?

Hi,

Is there a way to update the base geometry for an operation after it's been "closed"? It would be convenient to add faces or edges, for example, rather than to create many operations or delete and rebuild them. I haven't seen any way to do this.

Thanks in advance,
Frank

Re: Help with pocket operation requested

I tried that with little success, but I'll give it another shot. Probably a wrong setting somewhere.

I can get the path with a smaller endmill, but I'd prefer to do something faster.

Thanks,
Frank
