Allow the creation of a Datum Plane in the middle of two surfaces or two planes.
(Midplane Parallel, midplane between faces, midangle - Solidworks has this nice functionality…)
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.

Thanks 4 the enhancement.

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.
