Trimming a Quilt Using Curves
You can trim a quilt along a chain of datum curves or edges.
The rules for defining a surface trim using a datum curve are as follows:
You can use a continuous chain of datum curves, inner surface edges, or solid model edges to trim a quilt.
Datum curves used for trimming must lie on the quilt to be trimmed and should not extend beyond the boundaries of this quilt.
If the curve does not extend to the boundaries of the quilt, the system calculates the shortest distance to the quilt boundary and continues the trim in this direction.
