First-Year Engineering Program Approach 1 Splitting Work Plane Strategy  Create a WORK PLANE which is positioned  to function as the desired OBLIQUE  SURFACE where the material under the  WORK PLANE is to be maintained and the  material above the WORK PLANE is to be  removed Use the "SPLIT" function to remove the  material above the WORK PLANE Make the WORK PLANE "INVISIBLE“ HERE’S HOW ………… P. 5

First-Year Engineering Program P. 8 Selecting points that are not endpoints or midpoints Points can be created using Grounded 3-D Work Points within the Model Panel or Points on a sketch plane. You could also draw lines so that their end points could be used to locate the work plane. ( See addendum slides on pages 26 -29 for details )
