This tool converts Draft objects to Sketcher objects, and vice-versa.

How to use

  1. Select a Draft object or a Sketch
  2. Press the Draft Draft2Sketch.png Draft Draft2Sketch button


  • If you convert a Draft Wire, point constraints will be applied to the nodes
  • If you convert a Draft Rectangle, point constraints will be applied to the corners, and horizontal and vertical constraints to the edges
  • Non-Draft objects that are totally planar will also get converted to sketches

The sketcher does support straight lines and circular arcs. The conversion of any element that can not be represented with those will fail.

The conversion of any element that can not be represented with either a straight line or circular curve will just fail, i.e. the item will not appear in the sketch. See also the BSpline conversion in the forum https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=25082


Not available, see the Sketcher Module documentation for how to create sketches by scripting
