  • Toolbox: Modify Surfaces

Distance Sets the distance of the extension.
Closed Boundary If on the inner and/or outer boundaries of a surface can be selected to extend. Ctrl+Data can be used to select multiple boundaries of the same surface. If off, the segments of the outer boundary can be selected. Ctrl+Data can be used to select multiple segments of the same surface.
Rebuild Surface If on removes cusp points on a surface by sampling a set of points from the surface and recreating it.
Make Copy The original surface is retained.
