Break out view


New member
I keep getting this message when trying to create a break out view. "View does not contain a sketch with a closed profile." I sketched a CIRCLE. Is this there some trick to getting this to work, Any suggestion?

You likely put the sketch on the wrong view. make sure you have the view selected before you start the sketch command. Sheet sketch browser nodes are nested under the sheet, view sketch nodes are nested beneath the view in your browser.
