To Create a Parallel Plane
By using the Parallel option, you can creates a Constructed Plane through a point and parallel to a plane.
1. Click Inspect > Plane. The CMM Construct tab opens.
2. Select the parent reference Csys from the Parent Csys drop-down list.
3. Select Parallel from the Type drop-down list.
4. Select two measure or construct steps in following order:
a. First, specify a reference point. Select a measure or construct step of the following types:
Circle (center)
Cone (cone vertex)
Sphere (center)
The new constructed plane passes through the selected step.
b. Next, specify the second reference. Select a measure or construct step of type plane. The new constructed plane is parallel to the selected step.
5. Click OK.
