General Usage Instructions

This app is available in sketch environment only, both in part and assembly context. When loaded for the first time, you will be asked to select a part file which contains at least one sketch block. The program will remember the selected part until you change it to another.

 

When a part with sketch blocks is selected, the app window will show how many blocks are available in that part. The list will be populated with all the blocks names from that part. When Insert button is pressed, the selected block will be copied to the active part and inserted in the active sketch. You are then able to select the location of insertion.
