Creates an associative 3D curve along the outer boundary of a body as defined by the direction vector. Visualize a beam of light cast along the direction vector shining on the object . The silhouette curve is generated where the light drops off and the shadow begins.
A primary use of the silhouette curve command is to determine a natural parting line.
Selects the solid body to receive the curve geometry.
Selects the work plane, planar face, edge, or axis to define the vector direction.
NOTE:To break the associativity, expand the 3d Sketch in the browser. Select the Silhouette Curve nested under the sketch, and select Break Link from the context menu.
