### Mirror Entities

• Need to have an axis to mirror about

### Copy

• Need to pick a ‘start point’ on the selected entities

• The ‘start point’ is the reference point for those entities

### Defining New Sketch Plane

Insert >> Reference Geometry >> Plane

• Need up to 3 references for the plane

### Info for a plane

1 Point

1 Line

3 Points

1 Line

1 Edge

(in the same plane)

### Info for a plane

Parallel Plane:

• Choose 1 reference face

• Choose 1 offset point/vertex

Plane at an Angle:

• 1 reference face – choose ‘at angle’

• 1 axis or rotation

### Info for a plane

Offset Distance:

• 1 Plane – Choose ‘offset distance’

Perpendicular to:

• 1 sketch entity

• 1 point

### Info for a plane

Tangent To:

• 1 non-planar face

• 1 point on the edge of that face

### Understanding Projections

Projection:

• A “VIEW” of an object

• Intended to be shown on a PLANE

### Interpreting Views

• One method of interpreting sketches is to reverse the mental process used in projecting them

• Each view provides certain definite information about the shape of the object and all are necessary to visualize it completely

### First- and Third-Angle Projection

• There are two main systems used for projecting and unfolding the views:

• Third-angle projection which is used in the United States, Canada and some other countries

• First-angle projection which is primarily used in Europe and Asia

• You should understand both methods
