Performs Boolean union operations on 3D solids and 2D regions by adding set of entities to another set to form a single entity.
Accessing the Command
command bar: union
menu bar: Model | 3D Solid Editing | Union
ribbon: Solid | Edit | Boolean | Union
toolbar: 3D Solid Editing |
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select ACIS objects to union: (Choose one or more 3D solids and/or 2D regions)
Entities in set: 2
Select ACIS objects to union: (Choose more ACIS entities, or press Enter to complete the command)
3D solids that are joined through the Union command often look no different after the operation:
This command also applies to regions:
Select ACIS objects to union
Specifies the ACIS entities to join into a single entity. Choose one or more 3D solids and/or 2D regions.
The resulting entity takes on the properties of the ACIS entity selected first. This command also joins regions and 3D solids into a single entity.
BimSplit - splits segments of wall-like solids into separated solids.
Extrude - extrudes 2D entities into 3D solid models.
Interfere - creates 3D volumes of intersecting 3D solid models.
Intersect - removes volumes not in common between two solid models.
Revolve - revolves 2D entities into 3D solid models.
Slice - cuts 3D solids into two parts.
SolidEdit - edits the bodies, faces, and edges of 3D models.
Subtract - removes one solid model from a second.
