Re: Strange behaviour with array of counterbored holes

Hi Chris, I had not heard of the topological naming issue, but I have done some research and yes it sounds like that is the problem. Looking at the Dependency graph, both Sketch and Sketch001 have arrows to the XY_Plane, does that not mean they are attached?. I have tried Part Design > Map sketch to...

Display Co-ordinate Questions

A couple of questions re co-ordinates 1) Is there any easy way to determine the co-ordinates of a point? I know I can go back to however the drawing was created, examine sketches, positioning, etc, but it seems like a pretty basic requirement to click on a corner and be able to see the x,y,z co-ordi...
