 A faster and easier SKETCHER experience...

Sketcher is the engine room of Parametric CAD.
As a designer it is where I think and test ideas to see if they work.

I have been thinking about how many clicks I end up doing in sketch.
IMO it is way too many I complain about too many times.

BUT, I think there are some great ways to really improve the flow of work.

Here, we have the add constraint command open.
But the only things i can do is ADD constraints.
To delete a constraint of a dimension I have to close the dialogue, go through the select and delete process then RMB and open the dialogue ot continue. So OLD!!!

Whilst the Add Constraint dialogue is open I would like to:
  • RMB and make a Critical pick.
  • Pick a constraint and delete it.
  • Pick a dimension and toggle it.
  • Pick a dimension and delete it.
  • RMB and go to Smart Draw.
As I see it this is not really much coding but rather adding some options to the GUI.
(Am I wrong?)

A similar enhancement of other commands within sketch could really speed things up a LOT.

What do you think?
