  1. Click Reference Curve by Intersection on the vertical toolbar.

  2. Select the plate system to receive the reference curve.

  3. Click Intersecting Objects .

  4. Select an intersecting grid plane or intersecting plate system where you want the reference curve.

  5. Click Boundaries .

  6. Define the reference curve boundaries using one or more of the following methods:

    Pick boundaries

    Define a boundary curve

  7. Click Accept .

  8. If the boundary definition results in two solutions, pick the needed solution using the following procedure:

    Solve ambiguous solution created by selected boundaries

  9. Click Finish to place the reference curve.

    • If you do not select boundaries, the software uses the entire length of the base curve to apply to the resulting reference curve.

    • A reference curve is always attached to a plate system.
