Aligning Sketches

After extracting sketches for conversion to a 3D part, you can align the sketches before creating the base feature. The sketch selected first moves to align with the sketch selected second.

To align sketches:

  1. Select a line or a point in a sketch to be aligned with another sketch.

  2. Hold Ctrl and select a line or a point in the second sketch to which the first sketch is to be aligned.

  3. Click Align Sketch on the 2D to 3D toolbar, or click Tools, Sketch Tools, Align, Sketch.
