How can I create a new plan parallel to the front plan?
when I am just make a new part on solidworks environment, and I open my software and choice 3D representation of a single design component. How can I create a new plan parallel to the front plan? Need a help, thanks
Here are two easy ways to make a new plane that is parallel to the front plane. I am using SW 2012 but I think this has been the same for many versions.

There is an alternate way to do this, which is just one step shorter.
Holding the Ctrl key in your keyboard, if you drag the front plane out, it will create a new plane and bring up the feature manager tab for creating the new plane (like in the screen shot provided earlier).
Not much of a short cut, but i never knew it until somebody mentioned it. Thought i would share it!
