  • Projection – The target entities are divided by projection curves. Tool Entity can be Sketch Chains, Sketches or 3D Sketches. Target entity can be Faces. If you select 2D curves, it will be projected to the normal direction of a base plane but 3D curves are projected to the face normal of target entity.

Single Direction – If selected, the projection will be done using 2D sketech’s normal direction. To reverse a direction, click the (Flip Direction) button.

Bidirection – If selected, the projection will be done to both directions.

  • Silhouette – Creates silhouette to the pull direction and split the target entities. You need to select a Pull Direction and Target Entities. Pull Direction decides the silhouette direction and it can be Ref. Vector, Ref. Plane, Sketch Chain, Curve, Sketch, 3D Sketch, Edge, Loop, Region or Face. Target Entites can be Faces.
