    symbol > look at working plane

    I was working on a symbol and wanted to use the 'set working plane' tool. I am able to set the working plane inside the symbol, but not able to use the 'look at working plane' button. This only happens when I'm on a sheet layer and open the symbol from the resource browser. Is there a specific reason this is not possible?
  2. Hi the set working plane tool has only two methods: you can align it to a surface or you can use three points to define it. In many cases, I want to look in the direction of a certain line in 3d space (the edge of some object or just a segment of a 3d poly), especially to rotate objects around a line, using the line as an axis. So I would have to set the working plane perpendicualar to the axis. What is the best way to achieve this? Or are there other ways to rotate objects around existing linear objects in 3d? Thanks for any help. Markus
  3. For the "set working plane" tool I suggest an aditional 3-point method: - first click = i.e. start point of a linear object/edge to be used as a rotation axis = origin - second click = end of this linear object/edge = define direction of z-axis - third click = somwhere else = define direction of x and y axis What you get: a working plane perpendicular to the the linear object or edge. Or even better: the rotation tool should have an option to define the rotation axis by two clicks on the linear reference object / edge and a third click to start the rotation. Currently the rotation tool can only align automatically to existing planes, but not perpendicular to existing linear objects or edges. Go see i.e. rotating in SketchUp: there you can align the rotation tool perpendicular to the rotation (z-) axis by click-dragging in the direction of any linear object/edge. What do you think? Thanks for supporting these whishes.
