I am attempting to place a plane on a cylinder to sketch, coming upon an error. Any ideas?
Select another sketch that is parallel with the new one..
Select front plane as your first reference and make it parallel and then select the surface and make it tangent.
You need to select a 2nd or 3rd ref. before hitting OK
The problem that you are having is that there are an infinite amount of potential planes that would be tangent to your cylinder.
Basically, it is asking you to define the angle you want your plane to be at, once it is tangent to the cylinder.
Either select a point to go through, a plane to be parallel or perpendicular to, or a sketch entity or other line to be parallel to
The basic idea of creating plane on cylindrical surface is that first you have to select front plane or parallel face. And in Second reference select that cylindrical face. Then it will create plane on cylindrical plane.
