Space By Path Active Entity has no CrossSection.



Detailed Description

Space By Path Active Entity does not have a Cross Section. Cross Section is one of the inputs to the SpaceByPathAE to place a volume along a path. Cross Section will be one of two types: 1) a Visual Basic symbol with parameters controlled from the catalog, or 2) Sketch 3D, controlled using the Profile Sketch.

Possible Cause

Coding or data model errors in an earlier version.

Possible Impacts

Modification of the cross section attributes (like dimensions) is not possible.
