How to check the tangency of all the surfaces in a model.

I have created a model of hydraulic component using surfacing (Boundary blend).

Can anyone let me know any feature/way which helps to check the tangency of all the surfaces? or spot the edges where surfaces are not tangent.

I would appreciate your help.

The easiest way to check is to set the tangent edge display to dimmed or phantom line and view the model in wireframe. Using the entity display controls in the File-> Options window change the tangent edge display type.  If you do not have contrast with the background change the model color to improve visibility. Once you find non tangent edges you would need to dig into the features and look at the edge connections to investigate.

The Creo Connection Analysis Tool provides the ability to check multiple types of connections for surfaces/quilts or solid geometry. After the Connection Analysis Tool is open, right click multiple times on your model until the desired geometry highlights or right click>pick from list>Surf/Quilt/SolidGeom.
