You add Mechanism-Editors to Planes.
When you do Add Plane, the Plane dialog-box opens to specify its parameter(s) immediately.
At any time also, you can open the Plane dialog-box to edit the parameters of a Plane that you have added to the model.
The Plane dialog-box opens automatically when you do Add Plane.
To open the Plane dialog-box at a different time:
The Plane dialog-box is now open.
New Plane: Plane6
Plane Definition: Offset from Plane
Element box- the element you select as the reference for the Plane Definition
Parameter to edit:
Distance to New Plane
The offset dimension from the Plane in the Element box to the new Plane
The XY-axis that defines the new Plane is:
•parallel to the selected Plane
•on the Z-axis of the selected Plane at the Distance to new Plane
New Plane: Plane4
Plane Definition: Angle from Line
Element: The element you select as a reference for the Plane Definition
Parameters to edit:
Move Plane to end-Point check-box.
Enable to move the origin of the Plane from the start-Point to the end-Point of the Line that is in the Element box
Note: You must Move Plane to End-Point to add a Bevel Gear-Pair.
•Rotate around X-axis : Rotate the new Plane around the active X-axis direction of the new Plane
•Rotate around Y-axis : Rotate the new Plane around the active Y-axis direction of the new Plane
•Rotate around Z-axis : Rotate the new Plane around the active Z-axis direction of the new Plane
Default Origin of the new Plane is coincident the start-Point of the selected Line
Default +ve X-axis of the new Plane is from the start-Point to the end-Point of the selected Line.
