Copy sketches


New member
Is there a way to copy sketches from one part and paste them into another while keeping the orientation between them the same?

I need to recreate my part body in a new file because other part bodies (ie customer data) are preventing changes. I am hoping there is a way to maintain the orientation of all the sketches.

If you use Positioned Sketches, you can copy and reorient the sketches to match the new file.

Another option is to use PowerCopies to recreate the sketch.

Actually, PowerCopy will let you copy the entire PartBody and reorient all the sketches and features.
