please i need to create a 3d sketch array, but the sketch not the operation, is this posible?
Rhonald, I am sorry but the information you supplied it not enough. Can you add a picture of what your are trying to achieve?
As the picture, the gray color sketch is 2d sketch that comes from an array, however the blue one even with dimentions is a 3d sketch, now i woud like to exist a way to do a circular array as well because if not i have to draw line by line en of course so much work

Probably, but as Tom dunn said, it's hard to tell from your description.
How can I make a circular array in 3d sketch?

Patterns are impossible inside a 3d sketch.
However, you can create a surface body from your first 3d sketch and then pattern that.
Then use the edges to either create another 3d sketch or use the edges directly.
thanks... i figured it out, so sad for solidworks users
Here is a quick example of a surfacing method to get a circular set of vertical lines as shown earlier in the thread.
Thank you however i dont get the procedure so clearly
Attached is a video that shows how one could do this (maybe not exactly the way Alex Burnett did it).
It went pretty fast.
I attached the file so you would be able to look at what I did. Essentially, I created a circular pattern to make a lot of lines in a circular array and extruded those as a surface. I then did an offset surface on the inside circle of the solid.
Then I used Intersection Curve on these surfaces and it generated a 3D sketch out of all of the intersections. (I forgot that it doesn't create a feature called intersection curve otherwise I would have noted that in my previous response)
I then did a Delete/Keep Bodies on the surfaces to delete them since I no longer need them.
Thank you very much... it helps me a lot
