Benefits and Description

It is easier to add ribs to plastic parts with the new trajectory rib tool. After you sketch the planned view locations for the ribs on the model, ribs are created automatically. Intersecting sections are supported. The resulting ribs are extended from section endpoints to the part boundaries automatically.

The rib feature supports round and draft definition as part of the rib definition. You can externalize rounds created as part of the rib feature into a separate feature.
