Join Steven Marjieh for an in-depth discussion in this video Plane references, part of CATIA V5: Surfacing.
- I'm going to talk about planes now.…Select the plane icon.…You can either download the reference file…from the exercise files, or you can select on the function,…press F1 on the keyboard, and download…the Planes1 Part file from the CATIA help documentation,…and just simply open it up.…So, here I have my file.…The first type of plane I want to create…is what's called offset from plane.…Simply select the plane, the direction…you want to go in, and the distance.…Select OK, and there's your plane.…
I'm going to go into the plane function.…This time I'm going to go parallel through point.…Select your plane, select the point…that you want to go through, in this case…the vertex of that surface, and that plane…is now parallel through that point.…Go into plane,…angle, normal to plane.…So, for this, I only need to specify your rotation axis.…And that rotation axis needs to sit on the plane…that you're going to use as a reference.…So here, specify this curve, pick my reference plane,…and now, enter in the angle.…
I can say normal to plane, it'll go out 90 degrees.…
