  1. Click EdgeFromCurveOrSurf on the Geometric Construction Palette.

  2. Select a plate or profile system or part, a seam, or a solid.

    A green preview curve is visible on an edge.

  3. If there are multiple solutions, such as on the edges of a plate, click , select a tracking point, and select the needed value for Track Flag.

    If changing the value for Track Flag still does not give the needed solution, you may need to first create a point that you then select after clicking . The point can be created with Insert > Control Point, Insert > Topological Points, or other geometric construction point interfaces.

    Control Point in the Common User's Guide

    Topological Points (Insert Menu)

    Points (Geometric Construction Palette Dialog Box)

  4. Click Continue.

    Temporary geometry displays in the graphic view and as EdgeFromCurveOrSurf in the Geometric Construction Explorer.

  5. If needed, create additional geometric constructions.

  6. Click Close to return to the main command ribbon.

The geometric constructions are not created and saved to the model until you click Finish on the main command ribbon to create the model object.
