Reference Plane Wishes

Three wishes have I, wishes three... (for now)
  • Reference Plane Types (control over how they appear and can be used)
  • Split Tool works on them
  • Trim tool works on them
Okay four...
  • Filters can be used on them (for similar reasons to types)

Great choices, Steve. But, I have one more, Curved Reference Planes.

and an extra one,
being able to Select them all in the project and assign them a workset easily - not greyed

Oh man... if trim and align worked on them it would be a glorious day!

you can "Cut" structural members with Reference planes.

I would love it if all Annotations (for lack of a better term, ie: reference planes, callouts, section lines, viewport title lines, etc) would behave like detail lines in regards to snaps and being able to be modified by the split/trim tools, filtering, etc!

You can filter reference planes if you select them and then create a filter based on the current selection.

If there were a "like" button on this blog post I would have clicked it several times by now. Fantastic suggestions Steve, along with the curved ref plane suggestion.

Types ? or subcategories perhaps, including the built-in 'strong', 'weak', 'not a' ...

Steve said...

Andy...my bias (in this post) was using them in projects. I wasn't even considering them in the family editor world.

"Curved Reference plane"?
A plane(as in Reference PLANE) is by definition a flat, two-dimensional surface. The wish for a "curved Reference plane" therefore makes no sense at all!

Reference Surface, then
