Day #6: Can't Snap to Edge of Hex Nut to Create Triangle
Cannot snap to the edge of Hex Nut in Day #6 when trying to draw the triangle.
The setting 'Auto-Project Edges on Reference' used to be a Fusion 360 default. Turn the setting on in your preferences (see below) or manually project sketch geometry using the Project command (Sketch tab > Create Project / Include (folder) > Project).
Turning On Auto Project Edges on Reference
Open your Preferences dialog by selecting your Username (upper right-hand corner) > Preferences
- Select the Design tab of the dialog.
- Select Auto project edges on reference to turn it on
- Select Apply to activate the setting
- Select OK to close the dialog
Important: Auto Project Edges on Reference only works when you are viewing the sketch straight on. This will happen automatically if you have the "Auto Look At Sketch" preference turned on. Otherwise, select the "Look At" button in the Sketch Palette. This requirement prevents accidental projections while you are viewing the model at an angle.
