How do you create a new Workplane from a Defualt Plane and rotate it along a default Axis?
I am new to API and trying to create workplanes and rotate them along a Axis.
Im trying to use "AddByPlaneAndOffset" is this the right method?
No, AddByPlaneAndOffset allows only a plane parallel to the source plane. Use SetByLinePlaneAndAngle instead.
Sorry, couldn't provide the example at work. Now at home I'm too late.
The angle, if provided as numeric value without dimension is interpreted as radiant !
From developers help:
thank you for responding, i think i understand what you are saying heres my code for a more visual.
Dim oPartDoc As PartDocument
Dim oPartCompDef As PartComponentDefinition
Dim BaseXY As WorkPlane
Dim AxisX As WorkAxis
Dim oANG1 As Double
oPartDoc = oApp.ActiveDocument
oPartCompDef = oPartDoc.ComponentDefinition
BaseXY = oPartCompDef.WorkPlanes.Item(3)
AxisX = oPartCompDef.WorkAxes.Item(1)
oANG1 = "30"
what am i doing wrong my workplane ends up being a 2.xxxxxxx deg angle???
"grd" means just grad or degrees or ° and is the unit of angle value. Take a look at your fx-Parameters after creating your workplane and the new parameter for the angle.
