Move faces tips
Problem #1:
The moved face loses contact to a previous neighboring face. In the following example (picture 2), the cyan cylinder does not intersect with the moved planar face.
Possible Solutions:
You may need to add more faces to the move operation
Make sure that the move face still has contact to the neighbor faces by extending geometry (freeform only) using an Untrim operation
Problem #2:
The move face would create a gap in the model that cannot be closed by extending neighbor faces, but would need to create additional faces.
Possible Solution:
Move the faces one after the other. For moves with a single face the necessary faces to fill the gaps can be automatically created for many cases.
Use the Lift command (as shown in the picture 2) since that will insert new side faces in the model first, then move the remaining faces (pictures 3 and 4)
