Some tips to create sketches without projecting the part edges

Hi all,

I would like to share some tips which could minimize the additional task of projecting the part edges wherever possible. According to my CAD experience I generally avoid projecting the part edges since for some reason projected sketches may fail in later stage due to changes in other geometries. In other CAD tools we may have less opportunities to use minimum projections. But in Onshape we can make minimum use of projected edges. So, I use projection method only when there is no other option to create sketch. Also I prefer to keep the projected edges minimum as far as possible.

So, there are some ways where we can avoid projections. See the video below.
