Benefits and Description

A streamlined workflow improves productivity by reducing requirements for explicit sketch orientation. For simple sketched-based features, you can select the planar surface on which to sketch, select the feature, and go directly into the sketching environment. If orthogonal default datum plane references are found, they are used as sketch references. If they cannot be found, the part's global coordinate system is used as the sketcher reference. Alternatively, you can select the feature first, then select the surface and arrive immediately in the sketching environment, or select the sketch to use. This capability applies to Extrude, Revolve, Trajectory Rib, Profile Rib, Fill, and Wrap.
