Project a Sketch onto another Sketch

Hi there,

I came across this workaround for there being no project sketch on sketch feature (as far as I know) and thought I'd share. To the best of my knowledge it's parametric and will update with changes to the original curves (just need to close and reopen the files).

If there's an easier way to do this would love to hear it. Alibre package attached.

1) Make your first sketch

2) Thin extrude (Can make it as long as you like but must be atleast as long as you expect your other sketch to be)

3) Create a new blank assembly, insert this part in

4) Create a new part, and make your second sketch inside that and thin extrude again.

6) Make a new part from within the assembly
7) Add the sketch1 thin extrude as a boolean unite

8) Add the sketch 2 thin extrude as a boolean intersect

9) Add this part back to the original assembly
10) Hide the other two thin extrude based parts

11) Make a new part
12) Create a 3D sketch
13) Project to sketch + maintain associativity and select the correct edge on the boolean intersect based part

Quick & dirty method. Needs a little management, but less steps.
