|This feature allows you to place the compass base on a plane and route on that plane.|
|1.||Drag the compass

below it is one face of an item reservation and you will place a path
reservation on it.
|2.||Click the Path Reservation

below show one type of free space routing, in which you:
The last illustration below is a top view showing the path reservation and compass base on the same plane.
