Select
Selects an existing geometric construction object, such as a curve or surface, to edit or delete.
Add
Selects geometry that defines a new geometric construction. This option is used with the numbered step options listed below.
Delete
Deletes a selected geometric construction.
Cancel
Cancels the macro, closes the geometric construction ribbon and the Geometric Construction Palette dialog box, and then returns to the main command ribbon.
Close
Verifies the validity of values selected for the options, closes the geometric construction ribbon and the Geometric Construction Palette dialog box, and then returns to the main command ribbon. The selected values are still available when you click again on the main command ribbon.
Geometric Construction
Displays the current geometric construction interface. You can also select:

A different, recentlyused interface.

More  Opens the Select Geometric Construction dialog box. For a new geometric construction, all interfaces delivered with the software are available. For an existing geometric construction, only similar interface types are available.
Geometric constructions displaying only in the Select Geometric Construction dialog box are not intended for general usage. You should first consult your Intergraph support representative before using these geometric constructions.
1
Specifies the coordinate system.
2
Specifies the reference plane used as a supporting surface for the swaged surface.
3
Specifies a starting point reference plane or object. The intersection of this plane with reference plane 2 defines the starting point of the swage crosssection. This option is only available when Reference is selected for Start Pt Orient Type.
4
Specifies an ending point reference plane or object. The intersection of this plane with reference plane 2 defines the ending point of the swage crosssection. This option is only available when Reference is selected for End Pt Orient Type.
5
Specifies a starting height reference plane or object. The intersection of this plane with reference plane 2 defines the bottom height of the swage surface. This option is only available when Reference is selected for Start Height Orient.
6
Specifies a ending height reference plane or object. The intersection of this plane with reference plane 2 defines the top height of the swage surface. This option is only available when Reference is selected for End Height Orient.
7
Specifies the center locations for swage features when NonRegular is selected for Swage Pattern.
Reject
Clears the selections for the current step.
Accept
Accepts the current selections and displays a preview.
Continue
Completes the geometric construction definition. The ribbon continues to display so that you can define parameters for additional geometry.
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.
Category
Specifies the type of swage parameters. Select Auto Preview, Main, Start Pt, End Pt, Start Height, End Height, Pattern, or All. Descriptions of the parameters for each category are below. All displays the properties for all categories.
Auto Preview
Specifies whether a preview of the swaged surface is displayed. The preview updates as options are changed. Select On or Off.
Main Category
Defines general orientation properties.
Along Axis
Defines the orientation of the swage crosssection on the reference plane. Select X axis, Y axis, or Z axis. For example, if the reference plane is on an XY plane, then valid selections are X axis or Y axis.
X axis: 
Y axis: 
Swage Dir
Defines the direction of the swage crosssection with respect to the reference plane. Select +x, x, +y, y, +z, or z. For example, if the reference plane is on an XY plane, then valid selections are +z or z.
+z: 
z: 
Ref Plane Offset
Defines the offset of the swage surface from the reference plane.
Start Pt Category
Defines the starting point of the swage crosssection.
Start Pt Orient Type
Select Offset to define point coordinates based on the coordinate system. Select Reference to define point coordinates as the intersection of a reference plane or object (by clicking 3) with reference plane 2.
Start Coord
Defines a coordinate value for the starting point. Type a value. This option is only available when Offset is selected for Start Pt Orient Type.
Start Clearance
Defines the distance between the starting point and the first bend of the swage. Type a value.
Start Extension
Defines the extension distance of the surface before the starting point. Type a value.
End Pt Category
Defines the ending point of the swage crosssection.
End Pt Orient Type
Select Offset to define point coordinates based on the coordinate system. Select Reference to define point coordinates as the intersection of a reference plane or object (by clicking 4) with reference plane 2.
End Coord
Defines a coordinate value for the ending point. Type a value. This option is only available when Offset is selected for End Pt Orient Type.
End Extension
Defines a value for the distance the surface is extended after the ending point. Type a value.
Start Height Category
Defines the bottom location of the swaged surface.
Start Height Orient
Select Offset to define height coordinates based on the coordinate system. Select Reference to define height coordinates as the intersection of a reference plane or object with reference plane 2.
Start Height
Defines a coordinate value for the bottom of the swaged surface. Type a value. This option is only available when Offset is selected for Start Height Orient.
Start Height Offset
Defines the offset of the bottom of the swaged surface from reference plane 5. This option is only available when Reference is selected for Start Height Orient.
End Height Category
Defines the top location of the swaged surface.
End Height Orient
Select Offset to define height coordinates based on the coordinate system. Select Reference to define height coordinates as the intersection of a reference plane or object with reference plane 2.
End Height Coord
Defines a coordinate value for the top of the swaged surface. Type a value. This option is only available when Offset is selected for End Height Orient.
End Height Offset
