I noticed today that when I open a sketch on the Top or Right plane, the z-axis of my sketch is negative to the global z-axis (see pictures attached; sketch axis shown by the slim red arrows, global axis shown in bottom left corner). I'm not sure if this is normal, but it is really annoying to me. When I think I've built a part in the positive z direction according to the sketch, it ends up being negative in the global. I've done some preliminary searching and found lots of suggestions for using

I'm using equations for the first time, and it isn't working. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong, or that SW has a bug. It won't evaluate even the simplest equation. I get the green checkmark after entering a equation, but when I try to click OK I always get a syntax error.

I have a nice but complex 2D Sketch. I have no issues extruding this sketch. BUT, I want the resulting solid body to be extruded a little further at one side of the sketch than the other.

Can any relation be given to Fully Defined Sketch without any problem? I am asking this because to make a sketch to Fully Defined one dimensions and relations are necessary. But in this case Fully Defined sketch is taking tangent relation without any problem.

I must have fat fangered something. Now I'm going crazy because I can't drag my sketch entities around. The "SolidWorks Help" wasn't very useful.

Understand the difference between starting a sketch on a plane or planar face. Create the first 2D sketch profile on a reference plane. Create additional 2D sketch profiles on planar model faces of the part.

We have recently created new parts templates and the dimensions are coming in weird. The units are in mm which is correct, but the dimensions in the model sketches are reading as meters. I have looked for a setting to control this and can't find it. I know I'm missing something obvious.

Is there any secret to get a linear pattern to follow a line rather than the x or y axis? I'd like to make a pattern using a construction line to determine the angle rather than an axis. If select the entities I want to pattern then select the line to set the direction it simply adds the line to the list of entities to pattern and retains the x axis as the direction.

I am not totally sure what you are after in your post. I am assuming that you would like the program to apply the Segment command across your 4 sketch segments rather than to an individual sketch segment. If that is the case you would want to first create a Fit Spline (GoEngineer - Fit Spline) of the sketch segments you have. This will merge them all into a single entity so that when you use the Segment command it spreads across the entire length of your contour rather than a single segment of

Bend sketch around planar curve? I've got this part I mocked up by sweeping a thin rectangle along a 3D spline, and then sketching a rectangle near to parallel to it, and patterning it using pattern along curve, which worked okay to get an idea of what it should look like, but isn't quite right. My rectangular sketch can't actually become flush with the bottom edge of the sweep as it's flat (both on the side and the top edge).
