Benefits and Description

Use Geometry Rules to quickly identify and select geometry based on certain characteristics. If the original seed surface selected is planar then the rules available are Coplanar or parallel. If the original seed surface selected is cylindrical then the rules available are Coaxial, Equal Radius, or Same Convexity. Geometry Rules are retained and updated to changing geometry.You can use the selected set of geometry inside flexible modeling features.
