Using No Solve Move

No Solve Move tool_No_Solve_Move_Sketch.gif lets you move sketch entities without solving the dimensions or relations in the sketch.

If dimensions or relations exist between the selected entities and other sketch entities or model geometry, a warning message appears. The message asks if you want to delete the constraints caused by the dimensions or relations:

  • If you click Yes, the constraints are deleted, and the entities are moved.
  • If you click No, the constraints are not deleted, and the selected entities are copied to the location to which you moved them.

To use No Solve Move:

  • Do one of the following:
    • Click No Solve Move tool_No_Solve_Move_Sketch.gif on the Sketch toolbar.
    • Click Tools > Sketch Settings > No Solve Move.
