Copying Issues with Design

Every time I copy one of my projects and paste it into another new sketch, it paste it upside down every time. The only reason I want to do this is to add or subtract from the original design without altering it. Just can’t figure out how to copy/paste without it going upside down in the new sketch.


this forum topic goes into the reasons and how tos

“sketch geometry is stored relative to the coordinate system of the sketch itself. Each sketch will have its own CS, and pasting geometry from one sketch to another will simply make it relative to the new sketch’s CS. Depending on how the sketch was created, it can have a CS which is way different from the source sketch, hence the rotation/inversion. You have to move/rotate the geometry to be how you want it in the new sketch.” this is a quote from Jeff Strater one of the autodesk gurus.
