Projecting Sketched Curves

You can project a sketched curve onto a model face to create a 3D curve. You can also create a 3D curve that represents the intersection of two extruded surfaces generated by creating sketches on two intersecting planes.

You can preselect items before you click Project Curve . If you preselect items, SolidWorks attempts to select the appropriate type of projection.

You can right-click in the graphics area and select a projection type from the shortcut menu. When you have selected enough entities to create a projected curve, the OK pointer appears. Right-click to create the projected curve.

To project a curve:

  1. Click Project Curve on the Curves toolbar, or Insert, Curve, Projected.

    The Projected Curve PropertyManager appears.

  2. Under Selections, set Projection Type to one of the following:

Sketch on Faces

Sketch on Sketch

    A preview of the projected curve appears.

  1. Click OK to create the projected curve, or Cancel to cancel the transaction.
