Use this function to set or change a construction plane (CPlane), and to save a Cplane.
To set a construction plane:
Note: A newly defined CPlane is not saved automatically. To return subsequently to the CPlane, you must save it. See the steps below.
To save construction plane just set:
Note the uses of the List button on the Plane Definition Menu. You can use this to delete a CPlane.
You are able to associate planes with geometry, and create CPlanes based upon the associative plane. The plane can be defined by, and maintain associativity to, geometry in the part such that if the geometry is updated, the plane will update accordingly. This is particularly useful when CPlanes and Views are attached to associative planes.
NOTE: Geometry created using such an associated CPlane does not maintain associativity to the CPlane, however. That is, it does not update when the CPlane is changed. If the geometry that a plane is associated to is deleted, the plane itself is deleted. This will similarly cause CPlane and Views to be deleted when their Plane of reference is deleted.
