Creating Sketch Planes

Mechanical_DogMechanical_Dog Member Posts: 3
Is there a way to create sketch planes?  Such as an offset or angled plane.  I am trying to create a part studio with multiple parts that do not touch.

    @Mechanical_Dog Sure, just click the Plane tool on left from helix and choose Entities (reference figures) set Offset (or use dropdown menu for other options) and you should see preview instantly.

    Please don't give my a thumbs down on this one.

    But.....analytical surfaces are valid sketch planes. And controlling them is wonderful, easy, intuitive it's just a sketch.
