Re: Part Design tutorial

Re: Can I crete a sketch on a mirrored part?

I guess this just shows that asking a question, is an art in itself! Shame that there is so much slackness in written communication, considering it is so prevalent these days. Being unable to mirror an entire body is a serious shortfall in PartDesign, but given the single solid limitation I do under...

Re: Part Design tutorial

I am finding the instructions a bit brief and was unable to do the first exercise because it did not mention what plane the sketch should be created on. It doesn't mention which plane to sketch on because it's un-important, the sketch is revolved about it's own axis. You can make the sketch on any ...

Re: *Part* mirror - *PartDesign* feature - *PartDesign* modify both PD bodies

You have created the square pocket before the base feature, so it becomes part of the base feature. Sorry my mistake, although I don't remember doing it, I have set the tip in body_1 to pocket. The tip is the part of the body exposed to the outside, so mirror see's only the tip not the square pocke...

Re: *Part* mirror - *PartDesign* feature - *PartDesign* modify both PD bodies

As you saw it works. But it is not supposed to be used that way so it is not supported and could potentially be removed in any moment in the future.
I don't mean to argue, but what is the basis for this?
