Creating a Work Surface

Create a work surface from a constrained surface. The work surface is used to define surface curves in the UV′ parameter space of this surface.

  1. On the Windscreen tab, in the Surface Preparation group, click the  Work Surface icon.
  2. With the Reference face field active, click on the constrained surface in the 3D view.

  3. In the Offset field, specify the work surface offset from the constrained surface.
  4. Click Create to create the work surface and to close the dialog.
    The defined work surface is displayed in the model tree.
