FlipNormal, red and blue, and WorkPlane constraints

Top  Previous  Next

When you use WorkPlanes for constraints remember that they have a normal direction. The normals are the white arrows in the diagram below:

 

WorkPlane-Normals-Flipping

 

You can change the normal direction by choosing FlipNormal from the workplane's context menu.

 

If you see a red(dish) workplane you are looking at the front of it.

If you see a blue(ish) workplane when you are looking at the back of it.
