Everytime when I add a offset plane in Creo 2.0, using a datum plane and a line/point, it will start with an offset rotation angle.
99% of the time I just want a parallel offset. Is there a way to make this default?
Perhaps being just a bit anal...
Why not skip the step of the line generation and just do the offset from the right plane at the distance of your line?
I would guess, by selecting a plane, it assumes a plane and I would surmise selecting a point/axis/line it assumes a rotation angle.
personally, I like it that way.
but that might be me being anal
I've run into this as well - the axis choice is because that provides the datum location; there should be no dimension associated with the datum.
