Creates 2D linear entities (lines, arcs, circles, ellipses, elliptical arcs and splines) from the edges of 3D solids, 3D solid faces, and regions.
Accessing the Command
command bar: xedges
menu bar: Draw | Boundaries | Extract Edges
toolbar: Draw | Boundaries |
Quad: Draw |
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select entities: (Select a 3D solid, 3D solid face or a region.)
Entities in set: 1
Next Prompt: (Select more entities or right click.)
The 2D linear entities generated from the edges of the selected 3D entities are placed on the current layer, using the current entity creation settings.
No command options.
Boundary - creates a polyline that forms a boundary inside a closed area through a dialog box.
-Boundary - creates a polyline boundary inside closed areas through the command bar.
Imprint: imprints 2D entities onto planar faces of 3D solids and surfaces; allows to create additional edges on planar faces.
ProjectGeometry - projects 2D geometry onto a region, a surface or a 3D solid; allows to create additional linework on the faces of solids and surfaces.
XFaces - extracts a set of 3D solid or surface faces as a new 3D surface object.
