Construction planes offset from main planes


is this possible, e.g. selecting the XY plane as base and creating a CP with offset or selecting one of the principal axis for CP definition?


Hi, I do not completely understand your question and from what I understand I can suggest that you insert a construction plane. The plane can be repositioned to be on the XY using the Move/Rotate tool and you can use this as your base.

Here’s our great video on the construction plane feature:

Well, I do need to select a face or sketch first. Im looking for a way to place the plane just referencing a base plane. E.g. start an empty model, place a CP with no sketch in there yet…

Hi Max, I now understand what you mean. This is currently not possible in the app as you will need a sketch, edge, or face for reference. I will share your feedback with our product team.

Allright, thank you!
