To Create a Sketched Coordinate System

When you create a geometry coordinate system in a sketch-based feature, the new coordinate system exists as a regular coordinate system in the Standard application. Using a geometry coordinate system is the only way that a coordinate system created in Sketcher can convey feature-level information outside of Sketcher.

1. Click Model > Sketch. The Sketch dialog box opens.

2. Select a sketching plane and set its orientation, or accept the default orientation.

3. Click Sketch. The Sketch tab opens.

4. Click Sketch > Coordinate System in the Datum group. A geometry coordinate system appears at the tip of your pointer.

5. Click the graphics window to place the coordinate system center.

• You can create multiple geometry coordinate systems in the same sketch. • Right-click a coordinate system in Sketcher to toggle between Construction and Geometry. |

6. Click OK.
