I’m wondering if there are any commands that perform these functions (duplicating a surface and resurfacing) that I’ve overlooked. I’m currently making several steps to achieve my goal, but my process feels wrong. Here are the steps I’m taking now, perhaps there’s a quicker way to perform them with the same result:
Duplicating a Surface:
- Extract Surface from Solid
- Copy and Paste
- Join the extracted surface back to the original solid to close it.
Resurfacing a solid (for planar surfaces):
Note: Sometimes I’ll decide to extend a solid or surface, and the subcurves of the original surface still show, which is annoying if I decide to alter it another way afterward, like extrude it in the other direction or fillet it.
- Extract the Surfaces from Solid and Delete.
- Cap Planar Holes.
Perhaps your better method for resurfacing would help with the non-planar surfaces as well, but I’ve only really wanted to resurface planar surfaces, and by capping them I don’t have any issues with closing my solids.
Thanks in Advance,
