Creating edge-defined Coons surfaces
You can create a surface called a Coons surface, a region connecting four edges. You select the entities that define the edges. Edge entities can be arcs, lines, or polylines. The four edge entities must form a closed loop and share endpoints. You can select the edges in any order.
To create an edge-defined Coons surface
- Advanced experience level
- Do one of the following:
Select the first edge.
Select the second, third, and fourth edges.
- Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Coons Surface.
- On the Draw 3D toolbar, click the Coons Surface tool ().
- Type edgesurf and then press Enter.
Select the entities to be used as the four edges (A, B, C, and D).
The resulting Coons surface patch.
