Hi all,

After a short hiatus without SolidWorks I'm back on deck temporarily (thanks to my old boss) until I purchase my own copy. This is good because I was starting to have withdrawal symptoms. The bad news for you guys is............. more silly questions from me lol.


I've taken a 'converted entity' copy of a sketch from the face of an existing part and pasted this as the starting sketch of a fresh new part. The problem is that when it pasted into the graphics area it has no significant relativity to the origin point at all. How can I now set the origin to a point on the sketch that makes sense so that I may then continue to design this new part?
