I do a lot of 3D sketches when creating new parts. Is there a way to stop solidworks from throwing me into a 2D sketch when a new part is created inside an assembly.
How about creating a dummy 3D sketch in your template
Uncheck the setting shown below.
Thank you for the reply, but i already have the box "unchecked". What I am referring to is when you create a new part from WITHIN an assembly. Using the Insert Components>New Part command. You then select a new plane, and imminently tossed into a 2D sketch.
Just hit the ESC key when prompted to select a plane. It will create the part but will not prompt to create a sketch. I do this all the time but my new parts start as virtual then I save external if needed.
Interesting, doing this still creates a virtual part, but then places the planes at the origin of the assembly. Kinda of not what i need. I am creating plumbing/tubing/hoses this way, and would like the origin right at the end of the pipe.
