Derived Parts (Sketch in particular)

It would be a a massive improvement in parametric functionality if Derived Parts (Sketch in particular) could be inserted into an open Sketch of a Master Part Studio. This provides flexibility to use Derived Sketches in skewed planes and also multiple Derivations from the one sketch (eg Beam X-Section).

    Have you checked out the new "reference parameters" functionality?  I'm not sure but it sounds like you may be able to leverage this here by combining reference sketches in a custom feature.

    You could either
    a. copy a sketch and insert the copied entities into a new sketch ( breaks associativity)
    or b. derive sketch1 =, start sketch 2 and "use" entities of sketch 1 - preserves associativity, except new entities of sketch 1 have to be explicitly used in sketch 2.
