Is there any way to save just sketches, like you can save features in
the design library. There are some sketches that I use for both
extrudes and sweeps and I would like to be able to save just the
You can create just a sketch in a part file and save the file. When
you need the sketch you open the file, select everything and do a copy.
You can then paste the sketch into your new part for use. You could
also make you sketc in a drawing file and create a block. It really
depends on what you want to use this sketch for.
SW 2006 will allow you to make sketch blocks that can be saved and
re-used in files (like a library feature only it's just the sketch). I
think this is exactly what you are looking for.

You can put a sketch on the feature pallette (design library) just like
putting features there.

Did you consider using a macro to record drawing the sketch? Then every time
you need to draw that particular group of lines/arcs/splines you can just
run the macro. You can even assign it to a hotkey...
If you are good with VBA programming you can even streamline it with
positioning inputs etc...
