Inheritance model won't work

Inheritance model won't work

I am trying to create a model with an inheritance as the first feature after the base datums.  If I leave it as MERGE, it works fine.  If I change it to INHERITANCE, it fails.  I've attached the model I am trying to use for the inheritance.  I didn't try to vary any of the dimensions or make any other changes.  Just simply created the inheritance feature in a fresh empty model.  I tried with another part and it worked fine, so I don't think I am doing it wrong.  There must be an issue with the model but I don't know what it is.

Thanks for the suggestion, guys.  As it turns out, since the model I was bringing in is sheetmetal, the new part has to be sheetmetal, too, but I left it as the default solid.

Re: Inheritance model won't work

I didn't download the model to look at it, but is the model accuracy different between the 2?  Often times, if a model has a specific value set in accuracy to regenerate, the inheritance will fail if the values do not match.  Just something to check.
