Prompts you in the command bar:
Select edges of a 3D solid, surface or region: (Select an edge.)
Entities in set: 1
Select edges of a 3D solid, surface or region: (Select more edges or press Enter.)
Specify deformation value or set [Base point/Direction/additional Faces]: (Specify the deformation or choose an option.)
Specify Deformation Value
To specify the deformation do one of the following:
The edges are rotated around an axis passing through the base point (3) in the deformation direction.
Dynamics (left) and final result (right)
Allows to specify the base point.
The deformation axis passes through the base point.
Specify new deformation point: - (Specify a point in the drawing.)
Allows to specify the direction of the deformation axis.
Select axial entity or define direction by [2Points/Xaxis/Yaxis/Zaxis] <2Points>:
(Choose an option or press Enter to define the direction by specifying two points in the drawing.)
Allows to select additional faces to be deformed, in addition to ones adjacent to the selected edge(s).
Select additional deformable faces: - (Select a face.)
Entities in set: 1
Select additional deformable faces: - (Select more faces or press Enter.)
DmDeformCurve - deforms one or more connected faces of a 3D solid/surface by replacing their edges with given curves.
DmDeformPoint - deforms a region, one or more connected faces of a 3D solid or a surface by moving a point lying on one of them in arbitrary 3D direction.
DmTwist - modifies a 3D solid, surface or region by twisting a portion defined by two points around an axis.
