  • Parent for Naming and StructSketchInput must be parallel to the parent plate system of the original opening.

  • The original opening geometry is pasted to the new sketching plane in the same planar coordinates used on the original sketching plane.

  • Only the original opening geometry is copied. Dimension and relationship constraints on the original sketch are ignored. Use Copy Similar to copy constraints. For more information, see Copy by Family.

  • The copied opening has no relationship to the original opening. Each opening can be modified independently. Use Copy Similar if you need a relationship between the openings. For more information, see Copy by Family.
