startSketchOn

Start a sketch on a specific plane or face.

startSketchOn(data: SketchData, tag?: SketchOnFaceTag) -> SketchSurface

Examples

startSketchOn('XY')
  |> startProfileAt([0, 0], %)
  |> line([10, 10], %)
  |> line([20, 10], %, "edge1")
  |> close(%, "edge2")

Rendered example of startSketchOn 0

fn cube = (pos, scale) => {
  const sg = startSketchOn('XY')
  |> startProfileAt(pos, %)
  |> line([0, scale], %)
  |> line([scale, 0], %)
  |> line([0, -scale], %)
  |> close(%)
  |> extrude(scale, %)

  return sg
}

const box = cube([0, 0], 20)

const part001 = startSketchOn(box, "start")
  |> startProfileAt([0, 0], %)
  |> line([10, 10], %)
  |> line([20, 10], %, "edge1")
  |> close(%)
  |> extrude(20, %)
