Extends the boundary object along its natural path to intersect another object or its implied edge in 3D space.
No extend
Specifies that the object is to extend only to a boundary object that actually intersects it in 3D space.
Specifies the projection method used when extending objects.
No projection
Extends only those entities that intersect real boundaries in 3D space.
