I'm a little confused. After reading the documentation for IV 2013, I'm not sure if it's possible to create a midplane between parallel faces of two different parts or not. I've tried using the workplane buttons in both the 3D Model and the Assembly tabs with no joy.
Can someone please clarify?
You would need to use a parameter
If the one plane is constrained to another work plane, you should be able to use the paramter ID / 2 as your mid distane.
Work-Plane 2 is contrained from Work-Plane 1 by contraint "d26". You should then be able to us "d26/2" for your distance when you create your mid Work-Plane
Inventor 2013 does not provide midplane constraint. Workaround is to create Mate assy constraint between two planar faces. Then use half of constraint modifier(distance) as a parameter when creating new work plane defined by perpedicular distance form a plane.
Hope this helps.
Correction, I should have used "Offset" rather than constrained, but the same parameter methodology will work.
