Prompts you in the command bar:
Select several entities/subentities: (Select the geometry you want to move. Press and hold the TAB key to select hidden geometry. Press Enter to stop selecting)
Enter base point <0,0,0>: (Specify the base point for the move operation.)
Enter second point: (Specify the endpoint for the move operation.)
The selected geometry moves dynamically. To specify the endpoint, do one of the following:
- Click the left mouse button.
- Type a value in the dynamic input field.
Align - aligns one entity with another through moving, rotating, and scaling.
DmChamfer - creates an equal distance chamfer between adjacent faces sharing a sharp edge.
DmDelete - deletes faces and solids.
DmExtrude - creates a 3D solids by extruding closed 2D entities or regions.
DmFillet - creates a smooth fillet between adjacent faces sharing a sharp edge.
DmPushPull - adds or removes volume from a solid by moving a face or surface.
DmRevolve - Creates 3D solids by revolution of closed 2D entities or regions about an axis.
DmRotate - rotates faces of a solid around an axis.
