convert entities into sketch

How can I convert the edges of a queried face into a sketch created in FS?

    We don't have this functionality in FeatureScript yet. The way it works in interactive sketches is that the right sketch entities are created as generated FS and constrained to be projections of the source.

    Often, the simplest workaround for this is to use the face directly in other operations (for instance, extrude using face as entities, but choose direction, start and end bounds as needed). If you need it as a separate body, opExtractSurface may also be useful.

    Of course, one power of "use" is that is gives you a projection of the edges into a plane. For this, a workaround is to make a planar surface and use opSplitFace with your edges. This gives you a surface body with multiple faces and edges.
