HI,

you can attach the datum plane concentric to the circle and offset by 90 deg ROLL

I don't know how to attach the plan...
I would make the origin visible, double click on the plane and select YZ-plane with attachment mode XY and set z to -55.

Re: Sphere creation

There are two more things to say about your model: - The DatumPlane is unattached, which can make things attached to it unreliable or unpredictable - The sketch for the sphere contains a 0mm horizontal distance constraint. Use vertical alignment constraint instead. It is in general recommended to p...

Re: Sphere creation

You need to use an arc instead of a circle if you only want half the sphere. In the video I put the circle into construction mode, then make an arc. The revolve axis is the construction line that was already there. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mwganson/FreeCAD-videos/master/revolve_semicircle....

If you want to create a sphere by a revolution you have to model only half a circle. Otherwise you have so called self intersections.
Hello,

Thank you.
I'm sorry, I tried to cut the circle... but it seems it doesn't work.
