Fortunately, Cubify Invent provides us with a lot of flexibility to work from just about any angle of our choosing by providing us with the means of creating new planes at an angle to existing planes or surfaces of our objects.
We can create a normal plane simply by selecting one existing reference plane or planar surface of an existing object. But, to create an angled plane we need to make two selections that are complementary. These combinations are:
- Plane / Axis
- Plane / Edge
- Planar Surface / Axis
- Planar Surface / Edge
- Axis / Plane
- Axis / Planar Surface
- Edge / Plan
- Edge / Planar Surface
While the video tutorial neglected to include it, you are able to create multiple angled planes just as you can with normal planes.
Here is a short video that, hopefully, clearly explains the process...
It doesn't take long, once we grasp the process, to see that angled planes are something we are going to use very often.
Remember that when I first mentioned Cubify Invent, I said that I didn't want to immediately write a review because I was so familiar with Moment of Inspiration (MOI) that it would not be fair to Cubify Invent unless I had an opportunity to work with it a while. Well, I can tell you that the more I work with Cubify Invent, the more I have come to believe that it is a powerful design tool with a far easier interface than I could have imagined. I'm loving what I'm seeing and I've only scratched the surface!
I can't wait to learn more!
