Extracting Geometry

This task shows how to perform an extract from elements (curves, points, surfaces, solids, volumes and so forth). This may be especially useful when a generated element is composed of several non-connex sub-elements. Using the extract capability you can generate separate elements from these sub-elements, without deleting the initial element. …
