Re: Increase the default `Property View` -> `Point Size`

I'm beginning to think that it's just not worth replying to these scant posts, other than tell me more or p*** off. :lol: :lol:

Re: random sketch placement.

The way attachment works, the origin of the attached sketch is key. I think much confusion is caused by the lack of a visible cue when selecting attachment mode, particularly with the OXY,OYX......methods. The simplest way would be to select a point and use translate then rotate in attachment offset...

Re: Buggy attachment tangent to surface

Yes but it doesn't have to, there is a set of points, that would I think scribe a conic on the surface that would also meet the criteria. However they would not be tangent to the edge of the cone only tangent and non intersecting the surface. If the datum line is translated to the bottom edge the cr...

Re: random sketch placement.

This question is like the last one, there has not been enough thought put into the initial model. Solids not centred, sketches drawn from a million construction lines, and goodness knows what else. If 3D cad was easy it wouldn't matter, but it ain't, so it does. I would probably select a point of th...

Just out of interest, what exactly on the sketch gets tied to this c.of.m. point, the origin of the sketch plane? How is orientation determined?
