With Creo 8.0, the new construction mode allows you to sketch reference geometry with phantom lines, before you create the final geometry. This increases the variety of construction mode geometries.

This mode supports construction lines, arcs, rectangles, etc.

In addition, there is a new shortcut menu option that allows you to toggle the already sketched entities, between the construction mode and the solid type mode.

User Interface: Click Sketch > Construction Mode.
