Dogbone failures

Hey all!

You have all been a wealth of knowledge so far, and I bet you can help me pinpoint my problem here too.

I dove in a switched from sketchup to fusion360. it took a while to get used to the tools and workflow, but I think i have it down.

now I have odd problems with the dogbone tool.

I get this failure:

if you zoom in, it’s full of jargon that I cannot decript.

the dogbone tool works on some faces, but not all.
and even if I get this failure, sometimes it puts dogbones in anyway.
but not every time.

any ideas?

i’m still not 100% sure as to why, but most of the things im finding says that its an error with an Addin. its suggesting you perform a Clean Uninstall of Autodesk Fusion 360 and then re-install.

here’s where I got the information and they tell you how to go about doing the reinstal

The Dogbone add in is throwing an error because something unexpected happened. This could be just due to poor coding. The last line mentions BRepEdge which is Boundary Representation Edge so it could be that you have not selected an edge for it to act on. Best bet is to contact the developer of the Dogbone add in.
