I`ve tried to creat a plane between two holes, but i don`t found my correct selections.
I need the plane transversal to the beam.
see attached file
"If" the holes are aligned horizontally then pick the hole sketch center point which you have shown and the square tube top or bottom face as your plane reference...
Can you use the temp axes?
Use a temp axis of one hole, and the sketch point center of the other hole.
You can also go temp to temp
I tried it using the two temporary axes. That creates a plane coincident with them both. I don't think there's any way to get a plane midway between two holes without a sketch point, or something similar, for it to intersect.
You're selections must be wrong - works here - those are just temp axis - btw

Yep I wasn't sure which way was required had to google it

Maybe I should just take reading lessons and quit for the day - lol
Here is the quickest way, one sketch and add the plane. On the face of the part draw two lines from center hole to center hole and make them collinear and equal, close the sketch. Now select the line and the center point and viola, it done......
My head hurts too much for a Friday as it is. We will just go with the answer is 1 of these solutions.
My work here is done.
A hurting head on a Friday is a lot better then on a Monday
Warped minds think alike....
The OP only said "transversal" - should have been;;;;
Don't worry I still wouldn't have gotten it hehehe
Yes, you'd think it would be possible to define it in at least two planes, took me four using just the axes
Not sure what your doing wrong, or is it just a 2017 up grade, but I can show both temporary axis and select them and hit the green check mark and I'm done.......
John I think Rob is talking about the 4th plane as a plane "between" the centers of his 2 holes, which is how I first thought this was the direction the question was asking.
I see now after reading it that in this case Rob's plane 1 is the correct solution. Which was alluded to in most of the previous replies.
I should create a line coincident in the center of the holes, and select the midt point and the line.
then, when i change the distance between the holes, my plane is in the correct posicion yet.
You can also create an Axis or just use the Temporary Axis here
