Learn about sketching basics including the sketch plane, legend, constraints, context menu options, and construction geometry.

**Sketch Plane**

Select a sketch tool, then select a sketch plane to begin sketching.**Sketch Legend**

The Sketch Legend in the upper left corner of the modeling window indicates whether a sketch entity is Projected or Intersected, and whether a sketch curve is Underdefined, Fully Defined, or Overconstrained.**Sketch Constraints**

Apply geometric relationships such as tangency and perpendicularity to sketch curves.**Sketch Context Menu Options**

Create a sketch imprint, remove constraints, align axes, convert sketches to construction geometry, and show or hide grids, points, constraints, construction lines, dimensions, or intersection curves.**Construction Geometry**

Construction geometry is used as a reference to line up or define other geometry.
