Performs Boolean intersection operations on 3D solids and 2D regions by removing all but portions in common.
Accessing the Command
command bar: intersect
menu bar: Model | 3D Solid Editing | Intersect
ribbon: Solid | Edit | Boolean | Intersect
toolbar: 3D Solid Editing |
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select ACIS object to intersect: (Choose one 3D solid and/or 2D region)
Entities in set: 1
Select ACIS object to intersect: (Choose another 3D solid and/or 2D region; you must choose at least two entities)
Entities in set: 2
Select ACIS object to intersect: (Choose more ACIS entities, or else press Enter to perform the intersection operation)
Caution: if solids and regions do not intersect, BricsCAD erases them.
The program removes all but the volumes and areas in common from the selected entities. Left: the entities selected; right: intersection result.
This command also applies to regions:
Select ACIS object to intersect
Specifies the 3D solids and/or 2D regions to be intersected. Choose two or more entities; non-ACIS entities are ignored. You may enter all to select all entities in the drawing.
Caution: if solids and regions do not intersect, BricsCAD erases them. When this occurs, use the U command to bring them back to life.
