In this video, learn about SketchXpert, which can be used to define over-defined sketches.
- [Instructor] One of the sketch tools…that's on by default is the sketch expert.…This gives you the ability to solve over-defined sketches…and come up with a solution suggested by SOLIDWORKS.…So, in this sketch that I've started,…I've got my two dimensions and everything is fully defined.…If I add another dimension, essentially over-defining…this sketch, and leave it in there,…it's going to prompt the sketch expert.…So right now, it's showing that the item is unsolvable…and that it has conflicts.…
If I click down here where it says over defined,…it brings up in the property manager, the sketch expert.…By clicking on diagnose, we can find…what the solutions to that problem are.…You can also do manual repair and change it yourself,…but if we click diagnose, we can see…any one of these solutions would solve the fact…that we have too many things trying…to constrict our over-defined sketch.…So we can change that horizontal relationship,…we can change a vertical relation,…the horizontal relation over here,…we could take out this dimension,…
