Modify Surfaces Toolbox
The tools in the Modify Surfaces toolbox are used to create new surfaces from the union, intersection, or difference between surfaces; to trim, extend, stitch, split, punch, or extrude surfaces; or to change B-spline specific attributes.
All tools in a toolbox are not always visible by default. To see all tools, right-click in the toolbox and select Show All from the menu.
|To||Select in the Modify Surfaces toolbox|
|Trim two elements to their common intersection.||Trim Surfaces|
|Punch a hole in a surface, or to project a B-spline curve onto a surface.||Trim Surfaces by Curves|
|Construct a fillet of constant radius between two surfaces.||Fillet Surfaces|
|Construct a blend surface between two B-spline surfaces along their rail curves.||Fillet Surface along Curves|
|Construct a blend surface from two surfaces.||Blend Surfaces|
|Construct a B-spline surface extension to an element.||Extend Surface|
|Construct a B-spline surface that is offset from another surface.||Offset Surface|
|Merge a surface to the edge of a second surface.||Merge Surface to Edge|
|To stitch two surfaces together to form a single surface.||Stitch Surfaces|
|Used to combine two or more B-spline surfaces that share common edges.||Combine Surfaces|
|(3D only) Used to perform a partial delete on a surface or solid (shape, cone, sphere, extruded surface, surface of revolution, or B-spline surface) along its rule lines, in the U or V direction.||Split Surface|
|Used to modify the shape of a surface by manipulating handles.||Surface Handlebar|
|Used to twist a B-spline surface, or a mesh element, about a defined axis.||Twist Surface|
| Reverse the sense of the boundaries of a B-spline surface.
Remove one or all boundaries (holes) from a B-spline surface.
|Used to show or hide the control polygon, or to edit the number of control points and/or the number of rule lines for a B-spline surface.||Edit Surface Control Points|
