ZW3D CAD Tips ( Modeling —— What you should know about adding shapes with open and closed profiles)

\Depending on the state of the active part (solid or surface) and the feature profile (open or closed), ZW3D will perform either a Boolean operation (for solids) or a sew operation (for surfaces). In ZW3D, a solid feature will be created when the profile adheres to one of the following conditions:

 

  • A closed profile with both endcaps
  • An open profile with offset and both endcaps
  • An open profile with boundary faces (endcaps are forced)

 

Note: Endcaps are optional inputs available to many shape feature commands.  For example, during the Extrude Shape command, you can choose to cap the ends of the extruded profile or leave them open.
