Points in Sketch

Postby petat » Fri Dec 04, 2015 5:49 pm

Hello,
I had idea to make macro for holes but I found some problem.
When I put some individual points to sketch and close sketcher point are hide. Why?
I cant select those point.
Thanks

Hi!
Points in sketches are always construction geometry, and are never exposed to the outside. Generally, exposing the points to the outside is undesired (this will confuse extrusion and revolving routines), but in a few cases, I would like to actually do that too.
You can access the points through sketch.Geometry, together with all other elements, construction and not.

I am designer and I know Catia and Inventor and there are posible to make individual points in sketch and
after use points as driving geometry for holes and use those points for multiple pattern.

I often use circles instead of points, when making sketch-defined array.

A "point" from Part WB, i.e not PartDesign WB, which will be ordinary visible geometry in 3d not construction geometry.

Yes I know, but points from Draft WB is dificult dimensioning.
Why points from Part Design WB dont have two posibility (visible/unvisible) similar as line and other objects?
Thanks
