How to align coordinate system on two parallel planes/sketches?

Hello, 

I created two sketches on two parallel planes.  I found out, that origins of that planes are not aligned. Connecting both origins doesn't create line perpendicular to both planes.  Lofted objects  are skewed.

 

How can I align the coordinate system of both planes?

 

thank you

Chris

Hi, Mr. Chris,

 

A position of the plane's origin depends on how it is created.

Try creating the second plane offsetting the first.

When in API,   ... it is the obvious argument for it.

Hi MichaelT,

thanks again for your hint. 

I have found the point. I created the offset plane using a sketch profile as a reference plane. But the star-shape is not symmetric on both axes. Therefore it shifted the origin.

Using the xyPlane instead of the sketch profile is the solution. Your hint helped me to review the code.
