Create Freeform Surfaces Toolbox

The Create Freeform Surfaces toolbox contains tools to place or construct a free-form, B-spline surface, and to construct a surface by edges, by defining points or from a raster image.

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 Create Surfaces toolbox
Construct a rectangular B-spline surface by defining 2 or 3 corner points, or by defining multiple points that are averaged.

Planar Surface by Points
Construct a B-spline surface that contains selected elements as edges.

Surface by Edge Curves
Construct a B-spline surface by defining four points.

Surface By Corner Points
Place or construct a free-form B-spline surface.

B-spline Surface by Points
Construct a B-spline surface from a raster image
Surface by Image
