New in SolidWorks 2009 is the Sketch Slot feature. This sketch entity allows you to quickly create both Straight Slots and Arc Slots in a variety of creation methods. When you use this type of sketch entity and an Extrude Boss or Cut is created from it, a temporary axis is created not only at the arc center points, but also at the center point of the slot. The PropertyManager for the Slot sketch entity is shown below.
