working planes


Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble aligning the working plane to an object. I'm using the "set working plane" tool in the 3D modeling tool set, and I selected the planar face mode. The cursor changes to an arrow with a rectangle when I hover over an object, but nothing happens when I click on it.

Does this method only work with certain types of objects? Maybe not with groups or symbols? Is there any other way to accomplish this - maybe with 3D loci?

If your working plane tool is behaving like mine, you have to click on an edge, even when the face mode is selected and even when the cursor gets that rectangle. If you move to an edge, the cursor is changes back to an arrow. Click the edge and the face selection window opens with the candidate face highlighted in red. Click the next or prev button to toggle to other faces.

Keep trying, it will work.
