To Create a Datum Plane Through a Datum Coordinate System

1. Click Model > Plane. The Datum Plane dialog box opens.

2. Click the References collector and select a datum coordinate system as the placement reference.

3. Select Through as the constraint type in the References collector.

4. Select one of the following Plane options:

◦ XY—Places the datum plane through the xy-plane defined through the x- and y-axes of the datum coordinate axis.

◦ YZ—Places the datum plane through the yz-plane defined through the y- and z-axes of the datum coordinate axis. This is the default.

◦ ZX—Places the datum plane through the zx-plane defined through the z- and x-axes of the datum coordinate axis.

5. Click OK.
