How do I make the workplane that resambles the center of the part stay in the center of that part?
The only way I had achieved that was by grounding the center plane with the main part. There is a better way to do it, but I cannot put the plain in the folder of the main part in the model tree. How do I make sure the plane doesn't move when I mate it with the other plane without grounding? This is getting pretty complicated. Harder than PTC ProE was...
How do I know if both planes are flush?
Thank you for all the time you spend on me.
I verified the model with the measure tools.
It looks symmetrical. But Autodesk needs to add more constraints to make it easier to build things symetrical.
You need to create the mid-point or mid-plane (either will work) in the part itself, NOT the assembly. Open the part in another window just to make sure that you are not referencing any assembly geometry when you create the point or plane. Then constrain it in the assembly.
I solved the problem by making those bars extrude from a center plane in both directions. Now I found some serious bugs in Inventor. But they are not related to this. SO thanks.
