  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.

  • If you stop the command before clicking Finish, the software does not save the geometric constructions to the model. When you restart the command, the following message displays, giving you the option to recover the geometric constructions:

    "The previous execution of the command was not completed. Do you want to recover the 3D construction?"

    The message displays only during creation of an object and is unavailable when editing an object.

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