FS sketch not forming on new plane

Hi,

I'm trying to create a plane from 3 meshpoints and create a sketch on that plane. anyone know why it's not working?

FeatureScript 2045;
import(path : "onshape/std/common.fs", version : "2045.0");

annotation { "Feature Type Name" : "Mesh Points to Sketch" }
export const MeshPointstoSketch = defineFeature(function(context is Context, id is Id, definition is map)
    precondition
    {
        // Define preconditions for the feature to activate
        annotation { "Name" : "Mesh point 1", "Filter" : EntityType.VERTEX && AllowMeshGeometry.YES }
        definition.meshPoint1 is Query;

        // Define preconditions for the feature to activate
        annotation { "Name" : "Mesh point 2", "Filter" : EntityType.VERTEX && AllowMeshGeometry.YES }
        definition.meshPoint2 is Query;

        // Define preconditions for the feature to activate
        annotation { "Name" : "Mesh point 3", "Filter" : EntityType.VERTEX && AllowMeshGeometry.YES }
        definition.meshPoint3 is Query;
    }
    {
        // Define input parameters
        const meshPoint1 = evVertexPoint(context, {
                    "vertex" : definition.meshPoint1
                });
        const meshPoint2 = evVertexPoint(context, {
                    "vertex" : definition.meshPoint2
                });
        const meshPoint3 = evVertexPoint(context, {
                    "vertex" : definition.meshPoint3
                });


        // Create a plane using the three mesh points
        var _origin = (meshPoint1 + meshPoint2 + meshPoint3) / 3;
        var _normal = cross((meshPoint3 - meshPoint1), (meshPoint2 - meshPoint1));
        var Plane1 = opPlane(context, id + "Plane1", {
                "plane" : plane(_origin, _normal),
            });


        var sketch1 = newSketch(context, id + "sketch1", {
                "sketchPlane" : qCreatedBy(makeId("Plane1"), EntityType.FACE)
            });
        skLineSegment(sketch1, "line1", {
                    "start" : vector(0, 0) * inch,
                    "end" : vector(10, 10) * inch
                });

        skSolve(sketch1);
    });


Thank you all for your help,
Nik

    No need to use opPlane - use newSketchOnPlane
