Surfaces

Product: PTC Creo Parametric 9.0 Student Version
I was reading the help about surfaces with the "STYLE" tool, but I don't get to understand the difference between triangular boundary surface, quadrangular boundary and trimmed rectangle. It is help there are not enough examples to be able to understand it. The page where I found that is: https://support.ptc.com/help/creo/creo_pma/r9.0/spanish/index.html#page/surfacing/style/Defining_Surfaces.html# Nor is it clear what the Trimmed Rectangle option is for, which explains point 5 on the following page: https://support.ptc.com/help/creo/creo_pma/r9.0/spanish/index.html#page/surfacing/style/Defining_Surfaces.html# I would appreciate it if you could clarify my doubt. Thank you.

Estuve leyendo la ayuda acerca de las superficies con la herramienta "ESTILO", pero no llego a comprender la diferencia entre superficie limite triangular, limite cuadrangular y rectangulo recortado. Es la ayuda no hay suficientes ejemplos para poder comprenderlo. La página donde encontré eso es:
https://support.ptc.com/help/creo/creo_pma/r9.0/spanish/index.html#page/surfacing/style/Defining_Surfaces.html#
Tampoco se entiende para que es la opcion Rectángulo recortado (Trimmed Rectangle) que explica el punto 5 de la siguiente pagina:

Les agradeceria si me supieran aclarar la duda. Muchas gracias.

In general, it is considered best practice to build 4 sided surfaces and then trim them to create the desired surface geometry (i.e. a 3 sided surface by trimming a 4 sided surface). So you would be well served by using 4 sided surfaces whenever possible and then trimming them to get what you need.

 

3 sided and N sided surfaces are possible using STYLE features but are generally not as robust as 4 sided surfaces.
