Mirror Sketches about Planes and Planar Faces!
This is one of the SOLIDWORKS 2018 small delighter which would save some time when creating mirrored sketches. So instead of creating a line for the mirrored sketch entities, one can simply select a plane OR planar face. In earlier versions one can only select a line or linear edge but now with SOLIDWORKS 2018 one can use planes or planar faces to get the same result. And even with using planes or planar faces to mirror sketch entities, symmetry relation is also created between the sketch entities.
And not only this works for 2d sketches, you can also use planes/planar faces to mirror 3d sketch (yes that is correct, read here Mirror 3D Sketch in a click!)
Stay tuned and keep reading for more enhancements of SOLIDWORKS 2018!!
