Generates a closed polyline or spline around the boundary of a flat, closed area, or the face of a 3D solid, or the area of a hatch pattern.

Prompts you in the command bar:
Select a planar enclosed area, a planar face, or a hatch to generate a boundary: (Pick a point inside a closed region, or select a face of a 3D solid, or select a hatches, and press Enter)

Pick a point inside one of the following entities:
This command does not work with 3D solids that do not have edges, such as spheres and tori.
The result of this command:
To work with the resulting boundary polyline or spline entity, such as to move or copy it, use L (last) selection.
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.
HatchGenerateBoundary - generates a boundary around a hatch or gradient fill.
