Creating ruled surfaces
You can create a ruled surface, which is a three-dimensional body that approximates the surface between two existing entities. You select the two entities that define the ruled surface. These entities can be arcs, circles, lines, points, or polylines.
To create a ruled surface
- Advanced experience level
- Do one of the following:
Select the first defining entity.
Select the second defining entity.
- Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Ruled Surface.
- On the Draw 3D toolbar, click the Ruled Surface tool ().
- Type rulesurf and then press Enter.
Select the first (A) and second (B) defining entities.
The resulting ruled surface mesh.
