The solver messages showing redundant constraints are not available before version 0.18.
Thanks.

After some sleep, I'm going to look into downloading version 0.18.

Thanks again.

The message was from the original file that you posted here. You probably already fixed it of your local file.
Thank you.

Yes, I did.

Re: Parallel Arcs Sketcher to Part Design Problem

As ChrisB already mentioned in the first post - your sketch is hidden: SketchHidden.PNG Toggling visibility by either selecting it from the tree and pressing "space" or LMB over it/Toggle visibility will show it: SketchVisible.PNG Notice the black color of the name when visible and gray when hidden...

Re: Parallel Arcs Sketcher to Part Design Problem

You can upload your file for further inspection. As for the constraints, did you add the coincidence constraint on the centers of the arcs mentioned above? No. I did attempt to do that at one point, but it was not possible to do so. I have attached my file to this reply. Thank you, again, for your ...

Re: Parallel Arcs Sketcher to Part Design Problem

Besides, one of your 0.125 measures seems to be redundant and should be omitted. I think both of the .125 dims are redundant, I'm pretty sure the arc dim will constrain the straight sections. Thank you for your reply. I tried removing those measurements one at a time. If I remove either one, the pa...

Re: Parallel Arcs Sketcher to Part Design Problem

Besides, if the centers of the arcs are coincident, then one of your 0.125 measures and one of the radiuses are redundant and should be omitted. Redundant constraints usually lead to problems in later steps. Thank you for the reply. If I remove either one of the radius constraints, the part can not...

Hi Gary, welcome to the forum.
I guess that you have toggled visibility of your sketch. Select it in the tree and hit the space key.
Thank you for your reply.

I have tried that, and every other view command I could find. Nothing works.

Parallel Arcs Sketcher to Part Design Problem

When I close a sketch of a part that includes parallel arcs, I can not bring that part up on the Part Design Workbench is anything other than Sketcher mode. When I close Sketcher, while in Part Design, the part completely disappears. As the part is fully constrained, I am mystified as to why this is...
