Here is a simple example displaying how confusing it can be trying to understand Turbocads workplane system.
3D selector active working in World plane.
Select the box tool Shift+Tab set x,y,z fields at 0,0,0 hit enter then make box 12x12x12
Select the box tool Shift+Tab set x,y,z fields at 0,0,12 hit enter then make box 12x12x12
No problem but the 2nd box is at a distance of 12 from the current World Plane yet the Box’s current WP is at 0.
You can see this by selecting the 2nd box with the WP by entity active
Select the cylinder tool Shift+Tab set x,y,z fields at 0,0,24 hit enter then make the cylinder however you like.
No problem but the cylinder’s WP is at 24. You can see this by selecting the cylinder with the WP by entity active.
Why is the cylinder’s reference different than the box, I’m confused.
Wait, I’m not finished.
Select the cone tool Shift+Tab set x,y,z fields at 0,0,24 hit enter then create the cone by dragging the radius and height click and let go. I’m even more confused now because the cone snaps back down to the World plan.
What a mess
I always just stick with whatever works for whatever I’m doing. Knowing what tools are available helps but trying to make any sense of something that just confuses me more doesn’t make any sense.
Unless I’m missing something.
