    Automatic origin Axes when starting a sketch

    Assaf Weiss

      Hi,

       

      I am used to it (from Catia) that when I start a sketch, the program automatically creates an origin with axes to which I can attach relations to (mainly symmetry between two lines, tangency, etc). In solidworks, there is only a point for reference in the origin, I cannot use symmetry (only midpoint) and I am ending up always sketching 2 center lines before I start each sketch. Is there an automatic feature to create axes in each new sketch with which I can use sketch relations?

       

      Thanks,
