Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Switching sketch planes, part of SOLIDWORKS Tips & Tricks.
- [Voiceover] In this video, I'm gonna be showing you…how to move a feature from one side of a part…to the other.…Now you can see I have this red cut extrude here…in the center of the part,…and I wanna move that to the other side of the part.…So you can see over here I've got a green face,…and I wanna move it to there.…So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go over…and click on Cut Extrude number one,…and directly below that is Sketch2,…click on that and choose Edit Sketch Plane.…Now the other way we could have done this…is just delete the feature altogether,…create a new sketch on the other side of the part,…but why do all that work?…All I need to do is choose a different face,…this one over here, which is green,…click on Okay,…and now that feature has been moved…to this side of the part.…
The only problem is it's going in the wrong direction.…Notice over here we have an error,…it shows up as red,…so click on that and click on Edit Feature.…You can see I've got that cut extrude…still going in the same direction it was before,…
