Pro engineer centering a push rod assembly on a piston.


New member
As the economic crisis struck our company I have to draft parts sometimes.

A machine has a square press head. I need to center a bracket to mount a connecting rod on it in Pro Engineer 5 that we just bought for our company.

How do I draw a dotted construction line where two axillary datum planes intersect, marking the center of the press head?
(sorry, not a piston)

What kind of objects can I select for the intersect command? The program is not letting me select datum planes for this command.

Can I make pro-e draw a construction line automatically through a center of gravity or a x-section center of gravity?

It is not mentioned in my textbook.

Thank you for your time.
