Project - Sketches

You can use the Project - Sketches tool to project or cast faces or edges of bodies to a sketch plane. With this tool, you can use sketches from other planes, faces, or edges as a reference to connect your sketch to.

  1. Start a sketch on the plane you want to project on.
  2. From the Sketch menu, select Project - Sketches.
    Note: A purple preview plane will appear on your target plane.
  3. Select the item(s) you want to project. The projected items automatically appear on the purple preview plane.
  4. To finish, select an empty area of the grid. The projected items are shown in purple.
