the Sketch Mode
After completing this chapter you will be able to:
• Use different SKETCHER options for creating a geometry.
• Dimension a sketch using the Normal option.
• Use the Mirror option in a sketch.
• Use the Intent Manager in a sketch.
• Modify a sketch.
• Use Modify Dimensions dialog box when you are using Intent Manager.
• Regenerate a sketch.
• Use drawing display options.

THE SKETCH MODE
Almost all the models designed in Pro/ENGINEER consists of datums, sketched features and
placed features. Generally, for creating datums and placed features, you do not require sketches.
However, to create a sketched feature, it is necessary to draw a two-dimensional (2D) sketch.
When you enter the Part mode and select the options to create any sketched feature, the
system automatically takes you to the sketcher environment. In the sketcher environment, the
sketch of the feature is created and regenerated, and then you return to the Part mode to
create the required feature. The sketches created in the Sketch mode are stored in .sec format.
You will learn about the datums and placed features in later chapters.
The Sketch mode is used when the design of a product is at its development stage. The designer
can sketch the 2D sketch of the product and assign required dimensions to it. By assigning the
dimensions, the designer can make sure that the 2D sketch of the product or model is satisfying
all the necessary conditions and then continue for the 3D model of the design, that is, the Part
