Hello can any body help me how to use the 3d sketch with angles? If I use it and use space bar it only changes the angle by 90 degrees. What if I want only 63 degrees?
Use smart dimensions or relations between exisiting planes or sketch geometry.
You should generate a plane at an angle on which you want to draw 3d sketch with respect to existing planes . Now make a simple sketch on that plane and then combine two sketches to generate 3d sketch
Create a overall 2D sketch box so you can visualize the 3D sketch a little better and then do what Kevin Pymm mentions
Thanks Guys. let me explain it clearer why I ask this question and where I intend to use it. I will use it in creating multiple wire just like
the picture below. Its would take a while if I will create plain each wire. The current solution I found was to create 1 wire and use configuration to alter the wire length to suit what is required. I was wondering if I can use the 3D sketch but I don't know altering the angle it seems its default to 90 degrees.
Why can't you just create your 3D sketches starting from your little upright wire poles and then just define the sketch lines by inputting the angles to them as you build the lines towards the outer terminals. This could be any angle in angle direction you want. Then just use a sweep along the sketch line to model your wire..........
Here is a crude example of what I mean. The final leg going towards the terminal is a compounded angle of 63 degrees in one direction and 45 degrees in another so there is no limit to how uniform you can run your wires.
It's so easy to do and then just use the sweep command as mentioned. Sample part file is attached if you want to see what I've done. Just click 'edit sketch' and play with it or to see the dimensions.
Thanks a lot. This works for me, now I can control the wire angles.
