Modify Solid Entity

Used to manipulate faces, edges or vertices of a solid by pushing or pulling them interactively.

The AccuDraw Compass automatically orients itself depending upon which entities are selected (single and multiple selections). The automatic AccuDraw orientations may be manually reoriented at any time to achieve desired outcomes.

Pressing and holding the <Ctrl> key allows you to select and deselect multiple faces. Clicking Reset changes the selections by replacing faces with adjacent ones. Multiple selection works only with faces of a single solid.

You can access this tool from the following:
  • Ribbon: Modeling > Solids > Modify Features
  • Ribbon: Modeling > Home > Modify
  • Toolbox: Modify Features

Distance If on, sets the distance that the face, edge, or vertex, is to be modified.
Variable Link
Let's you use an existing variable to set the input value, defined in the Variables dialog.
Note: If no variables exist, you will be alerted to create one first.
Mode Sets the push or pull operation to Offset or Move from the original face, edge, or vertex.
