I made a change in the drawing in sketch 1 i think and I think I broke it. I lost a lot of work and not sure if I could recover it. I am new to this, just a few weeks into 3d modeling and this is going to kill me!

    If the model is broken due to a sketch change, you can revert back to a previous point in time with the steps below. If the sketch was some how never saved, I'm not sure how to recover an unsaved sketch.
    • Open the versions and history tab.
    • Make sure you are viewing "Main"
    • While viewing main, right click the old version you want to restore. Then click restore to main.

    Hi Carlos, if this was a sketch that you had committed already and want to reference back to, try using the Versions and History Tab. You can restore your design to a previous point through the Restore functionality. If you were in the middle of a sketch and closed it out without committing the changes, then you will have to recreate your work.
