Solve failed (by Paul)
Hi,

I created a cylinder and hole for it in a block. I wanted to move the cylinder to the hole. So I select point on cylinder and point on the hole. Look at the picture.

When I select Constraint->On Point I got an error: Solve failed!

What I did wrong here?

You seem to be creating that constraint in the extrusion group. In the extrusion group, the only unconstrained geometry is the extrusion depth; the center of that circle was already placed in the sketch-in-plane group where you drew it.

To fix this, constrain the center of the circle in the group where you sketch the circle, and then extrude it.

Yes, that helped. I try to understand that. So, is the Solvespace something like pseudo 3d parametric modeler?

I can draw 2d shapes, extrude them, but cannot move them in 3d or create constraints there (only constraint on extrusion height works). Everything needs to be done in a workplane.

Correct; SolveSpace is a parametric 3d modeler. So a lot of things will work roughly as you'd expect from Pro/E or SolidWorks, for example.
