  • 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. See Copy by Family Command for more information.

  • 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. See Copy by Family Command for more information.
