is there a miling template that alows you to pick a plane as the floor. Looks like they all want you to pick a face.
What type of operation do you use currently?
What cutting strategy do you like to apply?

Planes by nature are infinite, so not something physical that you would actually cut.
Please tell us more about what you are tying to cut.
Are you trying to set the lowest cut level?
Or are you selecting geometry to machine?
I'm trying to rough the lobes of a cam. So there are no planer faces to select. So with a planer mill op I see where I can set the floor to a plane but I don't have a planer face to cut. Mybe my question should have been different. Today I started to look at muilti ais.
Thanks for the replys.
Here's a sample of a planar mill op using a datum plane and a fixed contour op using a old-style plane.
It's an NX part zipped with 7Zip (you should be able to open it with Winzip of 7Zip)

In case you are not aware of it, in operations with the interctive cut levels - like Cavity Milling and Zlevel Profile, you can select non-planar geometry for the bottom of the cut range.
Usually this is a planar face, but not always. You can select an exiting point, or you can select a curved face and the level will be set at the highest point.
