Do you want to measure the bottom surface of a Face Groove on a Flat Circular feature? If so, you can just measure a single point at bottom and reference to top plane or you can use Circular Plane. CAD Teach Circular Plane allows you to pick plane directly or pick 2 concentric 2D circles to establish Plane boundaries. Do you have a picture or drawing or part that helps explain what you need?

Thanks for the reply.

I need to measure a square slot with sample points to define the height to measure, it is on an irregular pattern, with a 3mm probe

Use a bunch of Edge Point measurements then best-fit construction to create slot. During best-fit construction you can specify work-plane.
