Working with origin geometry

As we continue to learn about sketching, I want to take a minute to talk a little bit about the origin geometry. Because the origin geometry is something you will interact with with every single part you will create and is essentially the center of the universe for every sketch, part and assembly you are going to create. I'll start out by creating a new part file, by selecting the New button on the tool bar, selecting standard.ipt, and then hitting Create. What this is going to do is create a blank part file, but it's not entirely blank. The one component that is always going to be in every part file are the set of origin geometry.

Origin geometry is found in the browser, in the origin folder, and if you click the plus symbol next to it, you can expand and see all the geometry that make up the actual origin. By default, the origin geometry is turned off. Essentially, it's a set of planes that intersect to create axes, which intersect to create a central point that is fixed in space, so that ...
