Error while in Sketcher-help!


New member
I'm in Pro-E sketcher mode attempting to modify a sketch and I am unable to do so. When I try to create a line, the following message appears:

Section has become geometrically unstable. Try to define different set of dimensions and constraints.

I have been working on this model with no problem and suddenly this message comes up and I cannot modify it.

Help! Thanks!


never seen that. paybe you should post a pic of what your doing.

but in sketcher always try to keep everything simple. (short and sweet)

dont try to do your entire model in 1 sketch, break it up a little.

Thanks for your reply. I figured it out but it is attributed to my sketch NOT being short and sweet! Learned my lesson, thanks!
