Are there any tutorials on plains?
I looked for some and have tried to figure it out. I have not been able to make any plains. But mostly I want to sketch a keyway on a shaft and thought that would be the way to do it.

    @nav ,
    Thank you. That will work perfectly. Plane is correct not plains.
    I was thinking of sketching two circles, connecting them with lines, then trimming. I like your way better.

    Depending on production technology, the semicircular-ended keyway will sometimes be preferred.

    I am short on time right now to post a model, but there are neat ways to model such a keyway which also work for the smaller cutter situation (4 fillets at 90 deg, instead of two at 180 deg) and which automatically make the slot the correct (standard) depth
