Create in place - huge improvement in establishing planes and origin

Hello,

 

I just started working on a part I am creating in place.  I don't know if this has been mentioned in the forum or in the "What's New" section, but the new method of placing the triad to locate reference planes and origin is a huge improvement over the older methods.  In previous versions, I sometimes found Edge orienting the plane in some oddball way I did not intend.  I would then have to delete the new part and start over.  This new method seems to make the location and orientation very clear.  Good Job!

This was one of the BIGGEST timesavers for me in ST6. No more being forced to create and then delete the part...multiple steps, interactive selection... I use this many, many times a day and now enjoy every second of it.

Agreed!

Also, opening the explorer window to name the part is great as I use consecutive part numbers and need to see the previous number.
