Midplane is basic functionality that simply has no excuse for being absent in today's high end CAD packages.

Parallel midplane; between faces; and midangle are all -very- simple coding.

We will consider this for a future product release

This would be awesome.  We would use this frequently.

Extending this concept to any 2 references would also be helpful.

e.g. between any 2 points (datum points or otherwise), between a surface (/datum plane) and a point, etc

This is now available in Creo 4.0 F000

Just select the two planar references and you should have the option of choosing midplane.

You can learn more about it by watching the video below:

Hello Raphael,

It’s a pity that this new functionality does not give the expected result by default...

During my midplane tests, I had to change systematically from Bisector1 to Bisector2.

The hypothesis proposed by default is not the correct one.

The enhancement was initially delivered in Creo 4.0. We also thank you for your feedback and thus  implemented and delivered improved default solutions with Creo 6.0.
