  1. Click Linear Extruded Plate System on the vertical toolbar.

  2. Specify the sketching plane for the mother curve using one of the following methods:

    Define a coincident plane
    Define an offset plane
    Define a plane using a point and a normal vector
    Define a plane using three points

  3. Click Add Intersecting Item .

  4. Select objects in the model that intersect the sketching plane that you want to use as reference geometry.

    These extra objects display in the Sketch 2D environment.

  5. Click Add Projection Item .

  6. Select objects in the model that do not intersect the sketching plane that you want to use as reference geometry.

    These extra objects are projected onto the sketching plane and display in the Sketch 2D environment.

  7. Click Sketch 2D .

  8. In the Sketch 2D environment, sketch the mother curve for the extruded plate system.

  9. Click Finish in the Sketch 2D environment.

  10. Click Define Boundaries .

  11. Define the plate system boundaries using one or more of the following methods:

    Pick boundaries

    Define a boundary curve

  12. Click Accept .

  13. If the boundary definition results in more than one solution, you must select bounded areas that together compose the total bounded area. Pick the needed solutions using the following procedure:

    Solve ambiguous solution created by selected boundaries

  14. Set the remaining plate system properties.

  15. Click Finish.
