Designate parts as obstacles when applying a single, split, or radial draw direction.

Enabling this option will ensure that during optimization, material is built in the draw direction all the way to the obstacle parts.

  1. On the microdialog for the Single Draw, Split Draw, or Radial Draw tool, select the Obstacles icon.
  2. In the modeling window, select parts as obstacles.
