Change the Sketch Plane

Change the sketch plane of an existing sketch curve.

  1. Right-click the sketch curve, then select Change sketch plane.
  2. In the guide bar, set the sketch plane:
    • Click one of the default sketch planes: Top, Front, or Right.
    • Click the planar face of an object.
    • Click a curve.
  3. Choose from Sliding, Centered, or Centered and Aligned.
  4. Optional: To detach the sketch from the face of an object, select Unlink Face. Now, changes to the object won't affect the sketch.
