feature modification problem


New member
I have a problem, when trying to modify sweep feature. Actually, it's a thin cut. When i open the sketch to modify trajectory i can't delete old references. The delete button simply doesn't work.

Please, tell me what may i do wrong?

You can't delete the old references because that feature must have been copied and is referenced by another feature. Try suppresssing the copied feature(s) and see if you can then delete the references. Of course, the copied feature will fail when you resume it, so you'll have to redefine it with the new references.

Sorry, I just ran a few tests and it seems that you have to delete the related features - I thought you could just suppress them.

Anyone have any other ideas?
