Sketch keeps disappearing

akshay_maldeakshay_malde Member Posts: 2
Whenever I want to extrude a sketch with multiple parts, as soon as I click on extrude, the sketch disappears. Also whenever I want to make modifications to an extruded sketch, the whole part disappears.
Anyone know what could be wrong and how to fix it?

    @akshay_malde, After performing any operation respected sketch automatically converted into hidden condition. For doing any changes in already created sketch user need to perform edit sketch operation. You can also get edit sketch option in model space also by right clicking on feature. Kindly refer below video for more detail.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Even with the eye showing the parts/sketches disappear.
    I have a feeling it's because my internet connection is a bit slow, could that be a reason?

    In my experience all that poor connection causes is delays and that spinning circle telling you it's still working..

    Sketches are automatically hidden after first use with extrude or so, if you need them later just click on eye icon to make them visible.
    Sometimes sketch can be behind existing part so that it's difficult to get selected for new extrude, then you can simply hide the part in front and show again after selecting the needed part of sketch.

    Hello, I am experiencing this issue. I started to extrude a shape and cancelled the extrusion, and my sketch disappeared. Confusingly and tantalizingly, two construction circles were left behind. Please advise?
