It's because I added the quote after my first submit by editing the post.

While you are in the Part Design WB, from the pull-down menu try changing Edit > Preferences > Display > Part Design > Shape View > "Maximum deviation depending..." to something less than the default 0.500% (maybe 0.1 %). A smaller value will make your model look better on the display at the expense of longer processing time.
No, I got a forum notification.
Good idea. I will try to when I can think of something worth modeling. I am aiming toward architecture so I don't have any engineering parts to model; but I want to learn as much as possible about all the possibilities of the software.
I got to about 8 minutes in video tutorial 09 then the trim feature would not work on the first circle.bejant wrote: ↑Fri Jun 29, 2018 8:03 pmThe two different ways to model a Switch Base shouldn't be difficult because the Switch Base is a single piece. If you start the model by creating your very first Sketch while you are in the Part Design WB, a Body should automatically be created and made active before you are taken to the Sketcher WB.
After that you might want to try doing something in the Arch WB.
That the line segments weren't the original line segments wouldn't be why the Sketcher Trim tool wasn't working.
Don't junk the file - you almost never have to do that. Instead, figure out why the Trim tool wasn't working, or upload your file to the forum and ask for help.
