here is an interesting experiment:
-datum plane on body's XY, no offset
-sketch on datum plane
-datum plane on sketch, add offset
-pad sketch to second datum plane
produces an object, but padded in opposite direction, at a random length
now that i think about it, it seems the wiki says you cannot pad up to a face unless it is already part of your object:
"If there is no support, no selections will be accepted."
why not? i want to start my body by padding between two predefined planes. Because i specifically want to to be able to track those faces, and sketch on them as datum planes, not as body faces to avoid topological messes.
is this intentionally forbidden? and if it must be forbidden, why can't the datum planes be considered part of the support?
