3D Sketching

You can create a 3D sketch with reference to XY, YZ, and ZX planes, axes, or surfaces.

You can use 3D sketches in applications such as SOLIDWORKS Weldments to insert structural members along a 3D frame, for routing paths, and to reverse engineer meshes into solid parts.

To create a 3D sketch, click 3D Sketch (Sketch toolbar) or Insert > 3DSketch .
