Do you have a picture of this surface?

Re: copying surface from stp file

You can copy the surface and you can extend the surface.  Each are commands of their own.

 

First: Set the selection filter to "Geometry"

Second: Select the surface you want to extend (one surface!)

Third: The Offset menu selection is now highlighted... select it.

You can offset by zero (0) but for this case, offset some small distance for now.

 

Forth: With the selection filter still set to Geometry, Select your first edge to extend...  the Extend button now highlights above the offset feature menu selection.

...press and hold the Shift key (not CTRL!) and select all the edges you wish to extend.

Fifth: Select the "Extend" feature from the modeling menu and enter your desired value.

Six: go back and reset your offset to zero.

 

The extend feature follows some kind of surface rules.  The resulting surface may not do as you expect in every instance.

Can you share the step file? Thanks

Re: copying surface from stp file

How do we attach files to these posts with Lithium?

 

 

Spoiler

Seriously! 

A blank little box with "Browse..." next to it is suppose to represent "ATTACH A FILE HERE".

 

Do people actually read feedback on these hosed interfaces?

 

Let's see... insert image, insert video... icons...  Insert every freakin' thing in icons, but an attach is a unmarked box.

 

Where is the focus group!

Hmm, I've got icons & text for photos & video and a button labeled "Choose Files" for attachments.  I'm using Chrome, you?

Nope, that's not what I get...  latest IE

And my computer can't be much more bone-stock than it is.

I just find that people tend to accept mediocrity with absolute abandonment of a quality experience.

Sorry, didn't mean to derail.

 

I attached a file that followed my annotation above.
