    Create mass based on iclined work plane

    Hello.

    Any one know how to create an extrusion mass with its base is on an inclined plane? I need to create a beams sisten of an old barn where his beams are not equal and straight like its showing in the imagen. I dont know if its possible to use the inclined plane as a base or any other ideas how to do it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Create a named inclined reference plane and set as the Work Plane
    Create an extrusion

    Tip: Beams also can follow a sloped work plane.

    named reference planes are your friend in this case.
    There are some elements that will not host to sloped work planes but in general most will, as Nurlan mentioned you have to define the work plane before creating the object concerned that needs to be hosted to the sloped plane.

    Only named reference planes will show in the list of planes you can choose as work planes.
