Creating plane problem

gregan_pacegregan_pace Member Posts: 5
I'm trying to create a plane to basically cut a corner off of a square and I'm having a problem doing it. I'm not an expert in any cad software, so maybe I'm just going about it the wrong way. I just created sketched lines on all three sides of the corner and then have hit the plane button and selected the 3 lines, but they none of the plane options seem to do anything once I have created the plane. If there is an easier way to just cut the selected corner from the square, I would just do that as well.

    Resolved. It worked when I picked endpoints instead of the lines.

    Similarly if anyone wants a plane through a line and a point:
    at present this is not explicitly an option.

    The workaround is to select the endpoints of the line, and the remote point, and make a plane through three points.
