All datums are considered part features and can be redefined. Figure. 1 Datum plane tangent to the cylinder In a complicated part, it is likely that not all the features can be created on a single plane. Datum planes can be created and used as a sketch plane where no suitable one currently exists and can be used to draw the remaining features. Thus, the primary use of a datum plane is to serve as a sketching plane. As an example, a datum plane can be constructed tangent to a cylinder (as shown in Figure.1 ) This newly constructed plane can be used as a sketching plane to further create any extruded feature on the cylinder. Another example where datum planes are
