How to copy sketch to different plane in SOLIDWORKS?

  1. Step 1:

    To copy a sketch you already must have a sketch so I created one.Now I am gonna close this sketch.


  2. Step 2:

    Now I am going to select the sketch on the feature tree at the left and I will press Right Ctrl+C, you need to hold Ctrl and then press C.


  3. Step 3:

    Now I have made a plane as a reference and moved it a little bit to make it more clear, you do not need to create one, you can copy sketch to whatever plane you want.

    I am going to start a sketch on this plane, and then I will just press Right Ctrl+V, then the sketch should appear.


  4. Step 4:

    As you can see the same sketch was copied to a different plane, it is an easy way to save your time, if you want the same sketch on parallel planes you can use Convert Entities.

    Often it will be better to make a block with the sketch and save it for reuse according to your needs. You have needed it twice! :)

    Don't forget to also mention Derived Sketches.
    Copied sketches can be useful, but Derived Sketches maintain an association to the original sketch. This is often handy as changing a single sketch can modify the other downstream "copies".
