# Solidworks: Make a copy of a sketch on a different plane

I have Sketch 1. It's on Plane 1. There's a different Plane 2, and I want to make Pketch 2 which is simply the entities in Sketch 1 copied to Sketch 2. I don't want to copy-paste, because I want to have their constrains preserved.

Doing "Convert Entities" doesn't help, because the shapes become different, since they are projected to the plane.

• What do you mean by different plane 2? Do you mean front and top ... planes ? could you add a photo? Aug 25 '18 at 20:23
• In my case the angle between the two planes is 60. Aug 25 '18 at 20:27
• Try mirror plane, if it's not what you want, then lemme know. Aug 26 '18 at 16:38
• @SamFarjamirad I have no idea what "Mirror Plane" is. I googled for it and found something related to assemblies, while I'm working on a mere part. If it exists, can you tell me where it is in the interface? Thanks! Aug 26 '18 at 20:19
• When you say "Constraints Preserved", do you just mean that it should still be fully defined, or that it should be controlled by the original sketch (in the way 'convert entities' would if it were flat?) Jan 8 '19 at 11:48

Step 3: Go to Insert $\rightarrow$ Derived Sketch.
