2. Click the Distribute button .
3. Define a reference plane for the distribution by doing the following:

a. Place your cursor over a geometric element that defines the plane (e.g., a construction plane, boundary, area contour, item reservation).

As you move the cursor, a small white rectangle is displayed to show the selectable planes, as shown below. A line perpendicular to the rectangle shows the direction in which the distribution will be performed.

b. Click to select the plane.

The selected elements are distributed along a line perpendicular to the plane, as shown below.
