    Can not Create Sketch on planer surfaces on imported part

    George Edwards

      I have a part that I imported from an iges file.  I did an check after import, no bad geometry or surfaces.

       

      Saved it as a SolidWorks part.

       

      I want to make create a sketch on a planer surface and but Solidworks won't let me.  It's a true plane, no curvature, I used the curvature tool.

      However if I pick a planer surface and use the reference command plane, it will create a plane tangent to, not parallel to the surface I've picked.

       

      How do I get around this?
