•Let’s review the following key features:
 ÄMulti-document support

 ÄStandard and specific menus & toolbars (File, Edit, Insert, …)

 ÄStandard manipulation (Copy-Paste, Drag & Drop, …)

 ÄIntuitive (Highlight, copilot, cursor shapes, …)

 ÄContextual menu (Mouse Button 3)

 ÄSpecification Tree (including all technological features, constraints, relationships, …)

 ÄWorkbenches and associated toolbars …




                                                                                             Page 2

• Let’s have a short Debriefing…

     .The Sketcher is a set of tools to help the user quickly generate 2D geometry

     .The completed Sketch can then be used to generate solids and surfaces

     .The capability to define constraints between elements in the Sketcher allows for quick
      modifications of the Sketch on subsequent solids or surfaces

     .Others tools such as Animate Constraints enable the user to explore design alternatives




                                                                                                Page 20

• Terminology

                The Sketch is the holding place for a group of 2D elements on a
                specific plane. There can be more than one Sketch using the same
                plane as support.



                                                                   The V-H Axis is the origin of
                                                                   the Sketch.
