Description

The Assembly Add Workplane.svg Add workplane command adds a Workplane to an active assembly.

A Workplane object will be created inside the Parts container of the assembly tree and a related workplane item will be placed in the 3D view. It is placed at the assembly's origin and oriented according to the assembly's XY plane, if the Assembly object was selected directly.

The assembly could be selected indirectly by some other item belonging to the assembly. Then the workplane is placed at the item's origin and oriented according to this item's local XY plane.

Valid items are e.g. Elements, bodies, vertexes, edges, faces, origins, and other Workplanes from either the tree view or the 3D view.


Usage

  1. Activate the Assembly Add Workplane.svg Add workplane command using one of the following:
    • The Assembly Add Workplane.svg Add workplane button.
    • The Assembly3 → Workplane and origin → Assembly Add Workplane.svg Add workplane menu option.
