## Description

Create a simple parametric plane 10 x 10 mm, with the parameters of position, length, and width. By default, the plane is positioned at the origin (0,0,0).

## Usage

The standard plane is created with its lower left corner at the origin point `0,0,0`. To change these parameters, open the Location section and enter the desired values ​​in the respective input fields, or click on the 3D view and select a point, the point coordinates are taken from the fields. In the Direction menu you can also define a standard vector (X, Y or Z) normal to the plane, or click User Defined ... to open the dialog box that allows you to set a different carrier (eg. direction 1.0 , -1 creates a plane inclined 45° with respect to X and Z).

The properties can be changed later in the Combined View → Data, after selecting the item.

## Option

#### View

You have the standard properties view.

#### Data

Base - Object placement data

• DataLabel : String name of the object, defaults to 'Plane'. User may rename it.
• DataPlacement: Placement of feature is defined by below angle, axis and position.
• DataAngle : Angle of rotation relative to the below axis.
• DataAxis : Defines the axis of rotation plane: X, Y, or Z. Defaults to Z axis, Z = 1
• DataPosition : Position X, Y, Z, relative to the origin 0, 0, 0.

Plane - Plane Specific Parameters

• DataLength : Length is the dimension along the X axis The default value is 10 mm
• DataWidth : Width is the size of the Y-axis The default value is 10 mm
