In this video, learn how to use the Extrapolate tool when you need a curve or surface to be a little bigger.
- [Instructor] I'm now going to talk about…the extrapolate tool.…I'm going to click on the extrapolate function.…And you can either use the reference document…that you downloaded or, again,…select the F1 key on the keyboard,…bring up the help documentation,…download and open the file provided from Dassault.…Let's get to work.…So the way extrapolate works is,…you can either extrapolate a curve or a surface.…So the first thing it asks for is the boundary,…what edge or what point are you extrapolating from?…So in this case,…I'll select this boundary off of the surface.…
As soon as I pick it, you'll notice that…the extrapolated element is extrude number one.…Sometimes you may have to go in there and change it.…It automatically propagates,…and sometimes it may pick the incorrect surface.…But just pay attention, and that way, you don't,…you don't get things criss-crossed or mixed up,…making sure you're getting the correct extrapolated element.…As soon as I pick it, you'll notice that…it creates what's called a linear extrapolation.…
