Following on from March's TOTM, this month we have another useful tool for positioning objects; the Construction Plane function.
The Construction Plane function allows you to set a certain level (height or Front distance) for the placement of objects.
You can now either enter a height manually, or select a point with the cursor (in this example I selected the table top, also using the Snap line points function).
Now when adding objects in to the Plan view, they can be dropped directly on to the plane.
To create a Construction Plane for the Front distance, simply follow the steps above, but create the Construction Plane in the Plan view instead.
To remove a Construction Plane, select the respective view, activate the Construction Plane function as above, then click Set to 0.
