The two point sketch plane enables a lot of versatility when Sketching in 3D space. Use 2 point sketch planes to create sketch planes at an angle, or connect two curves. This video shows you how to create and work with two point sketch planes.

 00:00:00,160 --> 00:00:03,690
 Now that you've learned about what a sketch
 plane is, let’s show you how to create a
 2
 00:00:03,690 --> 00:00:05,629
 sketch plane with two points.
 3
 00:00:05,629 --> 00:00:10,410
 While a 1 point sketch plane lets you create
 perfectly vertical or horizontal planes,
 4
 00:00:10,410 --> 00:00:15,160
 2 point sketch planes can be used to create
 floating planes at various angles.
 5
 00:00:15,160 --> 00:00:18,119
 There are two ways to create a 2 point sketch
 plane.
 6
 00:00:18,119 --> 00:00:20,810
 First go to an orthographic view.
 7
 00:00:20,810 --> 00:00:25,759
 Tap and hold anywhere on the grid to create
 a single sketch plane point.
 8
 00:00:25,759 --> 00:00:28,880
 Then repeat this to create a second point.
 9
 00:00:28,880 --> 00:00:34,140
 As you move the camera, you will see the sketch
 plane will appear at an angle.
 10
 00:00:34,140 --> 00:00:37,300
 This is one way to create a 2 point sketch
 plane.
 11
 00:00:37,300 --> 00:00:40,430
 The second method creates even more dynamic
 planes.
 12
 00:00:40,430 --> 00:00:43,070
 You can use curves to create sketch planes.
 13
 00:00:43,070 --> 00:00:46,480
 Tap and hold on any point on an existing curve.
 14
 00:00:46,480 --> 00:00:51,260
 Then repeat this on another curve, or another
 point on the same curve.
 15
 00:00:51,260 --> 00:00:55,150
 This method lets you create sketch planes
 at various angles.
 16
 00:00:55,150 --> 00:01:01,590
 It also enables you to sketch curves between
 two other curves to connect them.
 17
 00:01:01,590 --> 00:01:06,020
 Once you have your sketch plane created, you
 can use the options in the side menu
 18
 00:01:06,020 --> 00:01:09,500
 To capture them, edit them or lock them
 19
 00:01:09,510 --> 00:01:12,909
 So, now that you know how to create a 2 point
 sketch plane, give it a try.
