  1. Create the cross-section curves, lines, or polylines needed to define the surface.

    Curves (Geometric Construction Palette Dialog Box)

  2. If you want to use a line string to control the surface creation, create points at the curve vertices, and connect the needed points from curve to curve with a line string.

    Vertices from Curve or Surface

    Line String by Points

  3. Click SurfByCurves on the Geometric Construction Palette.

  4. Select the curves in order.

  5. Optionally, click , and select the line string.

    A preview of the surface displays.

  6. Click Continue.

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

  7. If needed, create additional geometric constructions.

  8. 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.
