A free edge is an edge that is not completely covered either by a connection or by another free edge treatment. That means that a free edge can be an opening edge (created in the Molded Forms task), a hole edge (created in the Hole Management task), an edge made by use of a boundary curve, the edge of a lapped plate, or an edge defined by use of a reference plane. A free edge treatment is any operation performed on a free edge, such as grind, bevel, or mill.
