Is there any way to set features to be invisible when create sketch after those 3D features so as to make the sketch more easy to see?

 

Thanks

F7 if the geometry is behind the sketch.

Or right click on Solid Body and turn off Visibility.

Yes, However, if the sketch is between a few 3D features? How?

 

Thanks. I received many help from you and I am really appreciate it.

If F7 doesn't make it clear enough and turning off Visibility of the part is not a good option, then maybe rolling up the end of part marker to a location before the feature(s) might work.  (I use all three of these as appropriate).

 

2013 (and I think 201) also allow Section Views and View Representations at the part level (used to be only assembly).
