3D Sketching Techniques – Insert points and Connect the Dots

Article by Rob Greer, CSWP created/updated October 17, 2011

This method assumes that you have a list of points that you wish to sketch to.  Start a 3D sketch as usual.  Using the “point” tool on the sketch toolbar, drop in the needed number of points.  Click on each point in turn in the model window and set the point location in the PropertyManager, once the point coordinates are set, add a fix relation to each point.  Once all the coordinates are set, you can now start the line or spline tool and click on each point to achieve the desired sketch path.
