A work plane is a construction feature that defines the parametric location of a sketch plane in 3D space. A work plane is useful when no planar face exists to use as a sketch plane, for example, when sketching on curved faces.
Inventor Fusion creates the following types of work planes. Most work planes are automatically created based on the geometry selections. Some work features, such as an offset work plane, also require a value to define the location.
|Icon||Work Plane Type||Inputs|
|Offset Plane||Select a work plane or planar model face and enter the distance.|
|Plane At Angle||Select a model edge, sketch line, or work axis, and enter the angle.|
|Tangent Plane||Select a cylindrical face and enter the angle. The plane is created where you clicked on the cylinder.|
|Midplane||Select two parallel planes or planar model faces. The work plane is created halfway between them.|
|Plane Through Two Edges||Select two model edges, sketch lines, or work axes.|
|Plane Through Three Points||Select three model, sketch, or work points.|
