  • Constructing a Feature?

    I'm trying to construct a plane perpendicular to another plane, I'm hoping someone can tell if there is and easy way to construct the plane with the contructed features area?

    I do the following. Maybe there is an easier way but I don't know off the top of my head. First, does the plane need to be in any particular location?

    I'd align to the measured plane (level, set whatever as orgin). Next, I'd create three offset points and just make up some numbers for the offsets. So if the plane is leveled to z-plus and you want your constructed plane's vector to be y-plus I'd create points at -3,0,0; 3,0,0; 0,0,3. Then, I'd construct a plane from those three points.

      Why not just construct a generic plane to the coords where you want it at?

        The bad part is that I'm working in body position & the plane need to relate back to another plane. The purpose of the plane is to measure some features to it. Heres a better idea of what I'm working with. I have a bolt pattern that is made by making a center line between the B & C datum then rotated 15degrees. The bolts are deminsioned parallel to that plane 25.5mm the other dimension is then shown to take that rotated center line & rotate it 90 degrees & dimensioned 43.7mm. So I need the construct plane to be depend on the original center line between the B & C datums.

          Rotate and translate as necessary then create the Generic Feature. It will always be dependant on the current Alignment.

            Assign values from the feature(s) that you want the plane relative to and construct your generic plane using those values. That should put your plane where you need it.
