Allow the creation of Datum Plane Through any Axis as only constraint

Allow the creation of Datum Plane Through any Axis as only constraint

Creo should allow the creation of a datum plane simply through an axis without any other constraint.

This functionality is necessary for creating the sketch plane for a revolution feature around any axis (for example: Axis through point and normal to 3d surface). The orientation of the plane is not necessary for 360° revolution.

This functionality was possible in Pro/E 2001 version and before.

For workaround, we create these Datum Planes with ProE V2001 UDF (see picture).

Hi Nicolas,

thanks for your idea - that sounds good

Can you place here the download link for your UDF, thanks.

Vladimir,

The principle of the ideas is to influence PTC to develop (or redevelop in this case) the needed functionality.

Giving out FDU’s will not help Creo to evolve.

Anyone can install 2000i2 and create this FDU.

The FDU  as been sent to you by mail but it is not my responsibility to share it on the PTC Community.
