  • How to change the start point of a radial auto plane.

    Hello friends,

    It always wants to start at 12 o'clock. What if I wanted it to start at 1 or 3 or any other number? How do I change that in an auto plane? Thank you all.

    You can change the angle (red in upper right hand corner next to IJK)

    or

    Highlight it, grab it and move it. Then you have to manually move all points

      The start angle is controlled by changing the values in the Angle I,J,K box.

      These values are the cosine of the vector line direction that defines the start angle you want.

      The direction of the vector line comes from the centre of the feature not the alignment but is relative to the
      X,Y,Z Axis.

      See sketch attached as a picture explains better.

      This is what I do for changing the start n stop locations of a radial plane

        You can create a temp alignment and rotate your trihedron to the angle you want, create your plane, and then delete the alignment and say "NO" when it asks if you want to update features to the new (your previous) alignment.
