In this video, we will showcase the SKETCH ON EDGE technique. Depending on the shape we are making, trying to create a plane in a complex area requires multiple planes to get the correct starting point. Then we must add sketch relations and/or convert entities to make sure the orientation of the sketch we are creating is properly located. One way to reduce the workflow mentioned above is using SKETCH ONE EDGE. To use this simple pick one end of the sketch segment you want to start from then pick the SKETCH icon. Once you do this SOLIDWORKS will automatically create a plane normal to the endpoint of the line segment and place an origin on the endpoint. From here we simply sketch and fully define the sketch entities and very quickly we are reducing our workflow which means faster design times.
