How to use the SOLIDWORKS Modify Sketch Tool

CATI's monthly contribution to the SOLIDWORKS Blog was posted earlier this week. This month I took a look at one of the "forgotten" tools in SOLIDWORKS the Modify Sketch tool. Modify Sketch is often forgotten about because it is not on the Command Manager or main toolbars but it can be found in the Tools dropdown, under Sketch Tools, Modify… The Modify Sketch tool, has 3 main functions for modifying your Sketch, including Moving/Flipping, Rotating and Scaling. The article this month goes through each of the tool functions and how to use them.


This is a great tool to use when reusing or copying sketches from one plane to another and has a lot of possibilities for all users to view the entire article please go to:
