Section view as new sketch plane


Is there a convenient way to use a face resulting from a section view as a sketch plane? I realize I could make two reference planes to get a similar resulting sketch plane, however, I am looking for a more streamlined procedure. If I recall correctly, Solid Works has a feature where a user could sketch directly on a sectioned surface. Does Solid Edge have a similar feature?



Thank you

I think the section function is more of a visual representation than any topological operation on the solid.

Live sections in Synchronous mode will allow you to use the face for sketching.
