Merge Surface to Edge

Used to merge the selected edge of a B-spline surface to the edge of a second surface. Typically, you can use this tool to heal small gaps between two surfaces, without creating a third intermediate surface.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Modeling > Surfaces > Modify Surfaces
  • Toolbox: Modify Surfaces

Continuity Defines how the first surface is merged to the second surface.
  • Position — The surface containing the second edge is ignored. Only the selected edge is considered.
  • Tangent — Lets you merge the first surface so that it is tangential to the second surface.
  • Curvature — Lets you merge the first surface such that it matches the curvature the second surface.
Factor (Continuity set to Tangent or Curvature only) Lets you control the degree to which tangency tangency/curvature setting affects the shape of the merged surface.
