Need to be able to show the sketches created from a featurescript in a drawing.

Jacob_CorderJacob_Corder Member Posts: 131 PRO
I am trying to create certain geometric shapes to be used on drawings as they cannot be done in drawings yet.  I am able to create these with featurescripts, they show in the models, but they cannot be shown in the drawings.  Probably because they are subfeatures of the parent feature.   

my question, is there a way to manipulate a featurescript where it will output itself as a sketch? some attribute possibly?

thanks for any help anyone can offer.

    The only thing you can really do is manually create a sketch afterward and "use" the edges created by your FS. Or if they are enclosed sketches you could create a surface from the sketch region (in code or manually).

    Hi I am having the same trouble as Jacob
    I have a feature script which is creating a very complex drawing 
    and then i need to display this in the drawings 

    does anyone know if they are working on a fix for this problem?

    There is a workaround where you turn all of the sketch edges into wirebodies with opExtractWires, and combine them into a composite part. This composite part can be inserted into a drawing.
