Surface to Surface ribbon bar


Use this ribbon bar to trim surfaces at intersections between two sets of surfaces, one of which must contain only one surface, and trim one or both of the sets of surfaces.

Select the surface you want to trim, click the part of the surface you want to keep, and press [Enter]. Repeat these steps on the surface to which you want the first one to be trimmed. Click Apply or press [Enter]when done.

When Mastercam trims a surface, it creates the trimmed surface as a new surface, and you can keep or delete the original (base) surface. You can also choose to extend the intersection curves to the edges of both surfaces, and split the selected surfaces into separate surfaces at their intersecting curves.
