Cubify Invent - Tutorial 13: Trim & Project to Sketch

One of the surprises about the sketch to object process is the fact that once a sketch is used, that particular sketch appears to not to be able to be used for a second 3D feature.

Fortunately, a sketch design results in a FACE and that face CAN be projected onto a NEW sketch.  This allows us to reuse a particular shape as often as we like.

We demonstrate how powerful this feature can be by designed an ornately arched doorway with a matching hallway.

The above design combined SWEEP, EXTRUDE and MIRROR, with the help of TRIM.
