In FreeCAD the word "Sketch" is normally used to refer to a Sketcher SketchObject (Sketcher::SketchObject class) that is defined by the Sketcher Workbench. This is a 2D drawing that uses mathematical constraints to describe 2D geometry precisely.

See Sketcher SketchObject for more information about this type of object.


There are two common ways to create a Sketch: using the Sketcher Workbench directly, or through the PartDesign Workbench.

Sketcher Workbench

  1. Switch to the Workbench Sketcher.svg Sketcher Workbench.
  2. Press Sketcher NewSketch.svg Sketcher NewSketch.

PartDesign Workbench

  1. Switch to the Workbench PartDesign.svg PartDesign Workbench.
  2. Press PartDesign Body.svg PartDesign Body.
  3. Press PartDesign NewSketch.svg PartDesign NewSketch.

After you finish editing the sketch, close it to go out of edit mode. Double click on it to enter edit mode again.


Эскиз обычно используется вместе с верстаком PartDesign для создания твёрдых тел выдавливанием, используя операцию PartDesign Pad.svg PartDesign Pad.

Однако эскиз может быть создан для любых других задач, его можно не привязывать к PartDesign Body. Например, инструмент Arch Window из верстака Arch использует эскизы для определения форм окон и дверей.
