I want to mirror this sketch in order to get the model in the tutorial. I am unable to get a fully Defined sketch. How to fix the error to get fully defined sketch?
It's common for inexperienced users to wind up with sketch entities stacked on top of each other so they're hard to find, and that's what happened here. There is an extra sketch point (undefined) at each of the locations indicated below. Delete them and the sketch will be fully defined. (Right-click on them and choose the "Select other" icon. Then pick one and hit your Delete key. If it tells you it's the endpoint of a line try again and select the other one. Repeat at the other location. I had to add a dimension back in at the left one.)
Instead of mirroring the sketch, why don't you create a 2D dwg from your 3D model?
Could you tell me please what you mean?
what I mean is you can create a 2D drawing and insert your 3D model into the dwg then you can have both 3D view and fully 2D view of the sketch
I couldn't understand what you mean. A demo video is highly appreciated.
Here is what I mean - see below image:
It would appear from the picture that the lower left end point is not constrained (using my old colorblind eyes) :-)
yes, youre correct. the sketch is fully constrained
You have an undefined point.
Greg Rupp and Steve Calvert,
That point is the end of a construction line. As long as construction line's positions are fully defined the sketch will show as fully defined even if the endpoints aren't. (I learned that here too but I'm afraid I don't remember who from.) I commonly leave at one end undefined.
As you can see below, the sketch is fully defined after I deleted the two points in my screenshot in the post above, but the end of the construction line is still blue.
Is there any way see undefined points in the sketch?

I'm not aware of any way if it's under another sketch entity. I found yours by deleting lines and hitting Undo until I found them.
Two things to do are go to Tools-Sketch Tools-Check Sketch for Feature, and use the display relations-all in this sketch.
Another feature to add to your knowledge base that I like is the "Fully Define Sketch" feature. While I don't think it would have helped in this situation it can be very handy. Using this option you can select where you want items dimensioned to, click calculate, and SWx will do the rest.
