Automatic Sketch Operations

Automatic operations increase productivity in sketching. Automatic relations and inferencing also improve efficiency in sketching.

You can dimension all entities or selected entities in a sketch, including model edges, with the Fully Define Sketch tool on the Dimensions/Relations toolbar.

You can solve over defined sketches using SketchXpert, which cycles through potential solutions.

You can transition automatically from line to tangent arc and back, so you can create sketches like this without changing tools.
You can convert raster data to vector data using auto trace tools.
You can highlight and activate planar faces or planes to quickly create sketches using Rapid Sketch .
