Benefits and Description
The Auto collect all solid surfaces shrinkwrap feature option copies the all the solid surfaces from a model of your choice to a part feature.
When you define the Shrinkwrap you can:
- Specify what parts of an assembly contributes to the resulting Shrinkwrap geometry
- Solidify the resulting Shrinkwrap geometry
- Fill contours (holes) on selected surfaces
- Display filled (removed) holes with a yellow curve
Filling contours such that a cavity is enclosed, removes the cavity from the Shrinkwrap geometry.
