Defect? - Points not snapping between different sketches.

karl_mochelkarl_mochel Member Posts: 32
II created a Sketch with construction lines that I want to use to build different spline loft segments. I am trying to snap spline points to the construction points but they don't seem to snap - though when I move the cursor over the points they do highlight. Is this expected behavior?

It's not preferred.

    Select the points you want to use, then hit the USE command.

    Or just add a coincident constraint.

    Not a great solution but this is the more "use"ful suggestion because I can get what I need done, but it sucks as a solution because:
    1) You cannot fence select all the elements you want. You have Shift select them.
    2) Depending on how you select it doesn't translate the line type. If you select a midpoint instead of on line the entities comes across as sketch entities. So you need to change them back.

    Doesn't work for this situation. Am doing inference constraints so I don't actually want to snap to those points. I am inferencing them to create vertical, perpendicular, or other constraints.

    OK, so add a vertical, perpendicular or other constraint.
