How do I get a 3D sketch to snap to a mesh file's vertices in SolidWorks 2017?

Question asked by Jesse Chivell on Aug 23, 2018

In SolidWorks 2014 I used to be able to take a low to medium polygonal mesh file and 'trace' the surface lines using vertices of the mesh in a 3D sketch. However, in 2017 I am unable to do so. The mesh files I dealt with were usually OBJ, and the purpose of 'tracing' the lines and vertices was a means of making a 3D sketch for reverse-engineering the old polygon shape into smoother part files.

 

Is this a feature that needs to be adjusted in settings or is this something that was discontinued some time after the 2014 edition?
