Sketching After Importing

robert_melascagliarobert_melascaglia Member Posts: 31
Hello

I just imported a model from Microstation as an STL file (and looks good).  I now have the model in Onshape, created a Sketch, but cannot tag any of the entities (while in sketch mode).  I want to move all the elements to the "origiin."  Thanks, Robert.

    Thank you gentlemen that was helpful.  I have since used the "Use" sketch feature which allowed me to proceed.

    If you make your document public and provide a link, it would be easier to help. If you imported an STL file then OS is probably treating it as a mesh. You can attach sketch entities to mesh points, but a mesh isn't itself made of sketch elements. However, you can use Transform to move the mesh (see icon below).
