Creating a sketch from a section?

Hello guys!
I would like to ask for your help on an issue i'm having. I have created a solid wing of an aircraft using a few different aerofoil profiles along the way. Is there any way i can create a sketch using a section on the wing so that i can start working on the internal structure of the wing?

There is an intersect tool in Sketch workbench. Just create (or edit) the sketch, and use the Intersect 3D Elements icon to intersect the sketch plane with the face of the wing.

Yes, or if you have - use the section tool which is in the DMU Space Analysis workbench. It can export the section into a new part creating a ready-to-work-on sketch.
