Re: Seeking help on modifying an existing model - part 1

DrMacro: Thanks for the reply. I often use the reference tool you mention, but I find that I very often can't select the sketch I want to reference.

Thanks for the insights, folks! Before anything else - my current plan is to watch many of the video tutorials referenced from the forum page, particularly those demonstrating 0.19, which is the only version I use (built from source).

Seeking help on modifying an existing model - part 2

HI, This is just to add the "after" image I couldn't add to the initial post (evidently there's a 5 file limit): AirAssistTrough_afterMovingTrough.png While the sketch in white is shown correctly aligned, the top plate has been moved so the trough is almost all the way towards the back of ...

Re: Cannot find problem causing "multiple solid" error - please help

Thank you both. I moved one edge to overlap and the pad is now functioning. Is there any kind of tool that simplifies the debugging process?

Re: Suggestions for improving my part design workflow requested

Hi, You said above "never ever reference an edge or a vertex from a solid". If I have padded a sketch (call it 'main') and then wish to create a new sketch on a datum plane relative to a face of that pad, so I can add an extrusion from 'main' that must be a certain distance from a vertex o...
