Add your YES/NO illustrations here.  Hopefully some noobs will stumble across this (or some not-so-noobs) and find a better path to enlightenment.

 

For instance:

 

PROPER BASE SKETCH PROTOCOL:

 

YES:

 

YES

 

NO:

 

NO

PROPER BASE FEATURE PROTOCOL:

 

YES:

 

YES

 

NO:

 

NO

 

 

 

Do not start a part without symmetry unless you have a good reason!!

 

The symmetric part will have planes in the center of the part and will often make mating much easier.

 

It's a sign of inexperience to not leverage symmetry, especially when it is so easy in so many cases.

 

Plus, would you start a cylinder like this??:

 

NO

 

That's essentially what you're doing if you sketch a base rectangle at the corner.
