Re: 3D sketch precise input tool bar missing the delta angle option

line start from x0,y0,z0. next point to be x0,y6,z20degree


Line start point is 0,0,0 endpoint is 0,6 at 20° into the z direction.


Of course I don't understand the point as this could be done more easily with a 2D sketch.  In fact, 3D sketches are much more easily created and especially controlled by 2D sketches.  I was hoping you would provide a hand sketch of a valid reason to do strictly as 3D sketch.

Thank you very much for your reply. In 2D sketch you only can get the line all in one work plane ofcause you can input whatever angle you want to. What I want to is in 3D sketch I can go any direction I want to. XYZ. My question is in 3D sketch I can input any number in xyz. but I can not input angle like its in 2D sketch. like I said if you screen shot your 3D sketch precise input that would be helpful. Thanks and have good weekend
