Tip of the Week October 10

Solid Edge - Using MICE with Keypoint Curve

You can reduce the time to find the locations you need by using the keyboard shortcut MICE (Midpoint, Intersecting, Center, Endpoint) to snap to the locations on a line or curve. Some users have had issues in the past getting this to work with a Keypoint Curve.

If your Keypoints are set to "All" instead of "Center and Endpoint", you won't see that you need to press "K" first. Set your Keypoints to "Center and Endpoint" then the Prompt Bar tells you to press "K" in order to enable the MICE shortcuts.
