hi say i have a line or arc that passes thru a plane ,can i delete to the plane ? without adding other items to cause a trim ,that is
newby here so it may be a dumb question...
Set arc/line endpoint coincident to plane.
Not fully understanding your question. If you are talking about trimming you can use constraints to accomplish what you sound like you are talking about. Other wise, please post some images the show what you are trying to describe.
i am just getting to grips with the basics so as suggested above ^^ line endpoint coincident to plane sounds about right
Ok, that is what I would do. Utilize the contraints and understand that 3D modeling is a whole different ballgame then 2D cad programs like Draftsight and Autocad.

Hi Joe, no dumb questions. We all had to start at the beginning. To my knowledge you cannot trim a sketch to a plane. But you can create a "new plane" offset at a distance, sketch a construction line and then use the power trim command to trim your sketch's to the construction line. Another thing you could do is use "split entities" and split the line you want in two pieces. Once you have the new intermediate point then that point can me constrainted to the plane with a relation. I added a couple of jpegs hopefully they will show the trimming to the construction line for you.
