Explore the Sketch Picture tool, which allows you to insert an image into a sketch.
- [Voiceover] One feature that can be really useful…when you don't have exact dimensions for your design…is the "sketch picture" feature.…In this example that I've got here,…I've tried to replicate a logo of something…that I'm a fan of, and create a form tool…for being used in a sheetmetal punch.…Now if I go down to my feature tree here…and expand this Boss-2 I can see that in my sketch,…I've got a sketch picture, so I'm going to go ahead…and show that sketch and you can see in the background…I've got the logo there, and I've actually used it…to roughly trace that geometry.…
I'm going to just edit that sketch so we can take a look at it.…So there it is, the geometry that I created…which is a combination of splines and lines…and offsets and different things, but again…it roughly follows that picture that I had to trace.…When we're done using that feature, we can just hide it…and then it's not in our model causing basically…a big roadblock that we can't really see anything through.…So how do we do this?…We start by just opening a new sketch, and going to…
