Is it possible to move or copy guidelines to other work planes?


Guidelines can only be copied or moved within a work plane. Copying or moving guidelines to another work plane is not possible.

For example, if a guideline has been created in the XY work plane, you can move or copy the guideline in the X or Y direction. However, it is not possible to move or copy this guideline in Z-direction (Figure 1). The guideline would have to be re-created in the desired work plane. This is also demonstrated in the video.

Instead of guidelines, you can use line grids that you can create in 3D.

In addition, you can use the COM interface to develop a tool for copying or moving guidelines to other work planes. The following is an example of the Knowledge Base:
