Model datum planes in assembly constraints

Experimenter

Hi,

 

I´m a new Nx 10 user, I come from Solidworks and I don´t know how to use datum planes in assembly constraints.

 

I have made a model template with 3 datum planes XZ, XY and YZ, but when I add the model into assembly and try to do contraints I can´t select these datum planes.

 

Always in my designs I try to reference the models through datum planes because I usually need modify faces or other componets and I lose the constraints.

 

How I use these datum planes in assemblies?

 

Thanks in advance

If the issue is that the Datum Planes are not visible when the Component is added to your Assembly, change their Reference Sets to 'Entire Part' and then after constraining your Assembly set the Reference Sets back to 'Model'.
