Selecting origin position for spur gear

stefan_nilssonstefan_nilsson Member Posts: 8 ✭✭
When creating a spur gear i was not able to select anything when i ticked the box "Select origin position". The text was "Sketch vertex for center" no matter what i did

    Thank You!
    I did try everything BUT an explicit point, intersections, midpoints etc. Would it be a sound suggestion that implicit points like the ones mentions would qualify as vertices in future versions?

    @NeilCooke wrote the script, I can discuss this with him. It could be possible to use any vertex if the normal of the gear was specified specified separately.

    It has to be a sketch vertex, so that can be a point or where an entity terminates or joins another.
