Datum Center Plane for Feature of Size

Newbie

Datum Center Plane for Feature of Size

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.

It's under consideration. Hope this helps.

Re: Datum Center Plane for Feature of Size

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...

Re: Datum Center Plane for Feature of Size

Thanks for verifying. I hope this consideration gets a lot of weight put on it.

Re: Datum Center Plane for Feature of Size

I don't know if this can be solved with UDF.datums inserted exactly in between with the use of relation.just a thought.
