I'm new to Creo but not to CAD. I often dimesion to the centerplane of a feature of size.
I've been told that when creating a datum plane in Creo there is no option for datum centered between planes.
I just want to verify that this is true and centerplanes must be created by using a relation or creating geometry at the center of my feature to use as reference.
Very disappointed if this is the case.
A very good Question one that I am trying to figure out as well. Have you been able to create Coordinate Systems using actual Features of Size. Your center plane for example, a bore and the width of a slot. I am new to CAD and Cero but not new to Inspection, Inspection Software or GD&T. Datum Plane and Datum Features are indeed quite different things. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Dale, you got caught up in the forum linking proplem...
I don't know if this can be solved with UDF.datums inserted exactly in between with the use of relation.just a thought.
I really can't tell from this string if the original question was answered. A centerplane is designated by assigning a datum plane to the dimension of a feature of size. This could be done very easily in Creo 3. How is this done now in Creo 5? Thanks.
OK, it looks like when I hover over the dimension witness line in the graphics window in an attempt to assign a datum feature symbol to that dimension (to designate a center plane datum), the witness line does not highlight. So, I change the selection filter to 'witness line' and try again. Still no luck. The witness line does not highlight. So, I hover over the witness line again, right-click > select 'witness line' > and finally it works. The witness line is able to be selected. idk wth...
