When working with surfaces, it is important to keep the parametric foundations of them in mind for making changes. Learn more in this video.
- [Instructor] One advantage of using parametric surfaces … to construct the solid model … is that the sketches that make up those parametric surfaces … can be modified in a predictable manner. … You can have flexibility as well, if you choose, … by leaving certain dimensions undefined. … Let's take a look at a couple of quick examples … of being able to make modifications. … We'll expand the Sketches folder … and turn on a few of the sketches, … such as the loft front and back. … These are the profiles … that the top surface transitions between. … By making modifications to the profile, … you'll see that the solid model updates. … This can be done on the back as well, … and you can even change the exit point of the crown. … By turning on the sweep profile, … we can make changes to the diameter of the sweep … and get different effects. … Then, turning on the extrusion profile, … we can tweak its shape as well and update the entire model. … Now, any of these that I've simply clicked and dragged …
