Displays all the boundaries for the object that you are placing. You open this dialog box by clicking Boundary List on the command ribbon during the boundary definition step.

All selected boundaries are shown on the left. The boundaries are as follows:

  • Model objects, such as plate systems or profile systems. Model objects highlight in a magenta outline.

  • Reference planes and other plane definitions. Planes highlight in translucent yellow.

  • Sketched boundary curves created using the Sketch 2D option on a supported ribbon. Boundary curves are prefixed with SketchGroup_ and highlight in yellow. The entire geometry as drawn in Sketch 2D appears.

Potential Boundaries List

Expands the dialog box and opens the Potential boundaries list as shown in the following example.

Current boundary list

Lists all the boundaries for the object that you are placing.

Potential boundary list

Lists all boundaries objects that you can select that meet the following criteria:

  • Model object and plane boundaries removed from the Current boundary list using the Remove button.

  • Objects associated with other current boundaries, such as a child plate system of a current plate system boundary.

Add

Adds the selected boundary in the Potential boundaries list to the Current boundary list.

Remove

Removes the selected boundary from the Current boundary list. A model object or plane boundary also moves to the Potential boundaries list. A sketched boundary curve does not move to the Potential boundaries list.

Deleting a boundary curve from the 2D environment (Sketch 2D on the main command ribbon) also removes it from the Boundary List dialog box.

Clear All

Removes all boundaries from the Current boundary list. Model object and plane boundaries also move to the Potential boundaries list. Sketched boundary curves do not move to the Potential boundaries list.

Close

Closes the dialog box and saves the boundary changes.

Sketched Boundary Curves

When you select a boundary in the dialog box, it changes to red highlight in the graphic view. For a sketched boundary curve, the entire geometry as drawn in Sketch 2D highlights in red as shown in the following example.

When you select a sketched boundary curve and click Remove, the boundary is not added to the Potential boundary list and cannot be added back to the Current boundary list. To recover a removed boundary curve, you must do one of the following:

  • Close the Boundary List dialog box, and exit the main command without clicking Finish on the ribbon. This cancels the boundary changes and any other changes you made in the command.

  • Save other boundary changes and click Finish on the main command ribbon. Recreate the boundary curve in Sketch 2D . For more information, see Define a boundary curve.
