You must often define boundaries when creating plate systems, profiles, edge reinforcements, and other objects. The common methods for defining boundaries are:

 Pick Boundaries

Define boundaries by selecting them graphically either in a graphics view or in the Workspace Explorer.

Pick Edges

This option is only available if you pick a plate as a boundary. Select the plate edges to use. Click Pick Boundaries to exit the Pick Edges option and select other boundaries.

 Boundary List

Define boundaries by selecting them from a list of potential boundaries. For more information, see Boundary List Dialog Box.

 Boundary Curve

Define the boundary by drawing its shape.

 Solve Ambiguity

If the boundaries that you selected can form the object in more than one way, then you have defined an ambiguous solution. The software prompts you to select one or more solutions.
