Datum Planes - Adjust To Outline


New member
In Wildfire, datum planes could be created with the setting Adjust To Outline set to a radius. This represented the max radius and was good for the default datum planes in start parts. If the model was smaller, than the default datums would scale down to match the part.

This isn't the case in Wildfire 2.0. Now, Adjust To Outline locks the datums to a set height and width, and that won't change no matter what the size of the model.

Has anyone else noticed this? PTC tech support is trying to tell me this has always been the case and the datums never scaled down. But I can see it plain as day on my screen.
