Moving a Fixed workplane

I created a sketch on a 'fixed workplane' and extruded it. I would like to know if it is possible to move the workplane?
I understand I can change the workplane if it is a 'plane by offset from plane'.

If moving a fixed workplane is possible, does the extruded features move along together?

Can you post a screen capture. About the only work planes that are fixed are the Origin Work Planes, all the rest should be able to move. Yes the feature on the work plane should move with it.

You could also try to redefine the plane. You could use a offset plane as new definition I assume.

Just ensure you define the new plane dependent on geometry that has been created prior to the

plane you´re talking about. If you don´t do so you won´t be able to move it up in the browser

hierarchy to redefine your workplane to.



Kind regards
