Selfie Ring Light Tutorial #5: Back Cover

Step 3: Profile Sketch

Now we’ll build a sketch defining the outside shape of the back cover, projecting lines from the Layout sketch:

  1. Ensure the Back Cover component is activated.
    (Click on the circle next to the component’s name in the Browser)
  2. Hide the ‘Front Cover’ component for now, it would get in the way.
    (Click on its  icon)
  3. Create a New Sketch on the front plane.
    (Click on  in the toolbar, then hover over the plane facing front and click on it)
  4. Check that this new sketch has appeared inside the Back Cover component.
    Rename it to ‘Profile‘. (Click twice on the sketch and enter the new name)
  5. Find the Layout sketch in the top-level component, and make it visible.
    (Expand ‘SRL mk1’ > Sketches and click on its  icon)
  6. Project the Layout sketch’s outermost circle and the horizontal line into this sketch.
    (Press p to select the project tool, click on the two sketch elements, then click on OK)


That’s it for this sketch! Project makes it simple.
