Bind a custom component object to a plane

MP4 video: 

In this video, we bind a custom componentcomponent that the user creates and uses for creating model objects whose composition the user can modify as a group

handle to a plane by using a distance variablevariable used to bind the model object to the object planes or construction planes

A distance variable includes a value and a dependency.

. Binding keeps the custom component at a fixed distance from the plane even if the surrounding objects change. We also edit the distance value to check that the binding works correctly. As you will see in the video, distance variables automatically get the prefix D (distance), which is shown in the Variables dialog box.
