Technical Drawing, 4th Edition by Goetsch, Chalk, Nelson
Isometric Sketches  Advanced Planes 1 of 10

In this
SolidWorks training I will demonstrate how to create a reference plane based on a compound angle, or a plane based on 3 points
Create a new part
sketch on the front plane
create a rectangle position at the origin
Smart Dimension height 2.5 inches and width 1.75 inches
close the sketch
Extrude the feature 1.25 inches thick
Now, to see how to create a reference geometry plane from the ribbon
Solidworks allows us to select up to 3 references for the plane
We will attempt to select 3 points, the two corners are easy, but unable to select a point on an edge or line
So, lets try again but this time we will first create a construction line
Dimension 0.75 inches
finish sketch
Reference Geometry
select the construction line or could select the two endpoints to create the compound angle plane
Our last step is to cut everything out above the plane using
Insert → Cut → With Surface… (I know that is confusing it doesn't say plane)
Change the direction of the cut
And successfully created a part using a plane at a compound angle
Thank you for watching
Inventor
Create a new part
sketch on the front XY plane
create a rectangle position at the origin
Smart Dimension width 1.75 and height 2.5 inches
finish the sketch
Extrude the feature 1.25 inches thick
New sketch on front XY face
line → construction
dimension 0.75
Constrain → Coincident Constraint
now sketch should be Fully Constrained
On the Ribbon → 3D Model tab → Plane → Three Points
New sketch on compound angle workplane
Project Geometry → Project Cut Edges
Finish sketch
Extrude with cut option
turn off visibility of workplane
turn off visibility of sketch
And successfully created a part using a plane at a compound angle
Thank you for watching
