In this video, learn how fill may be the only solution for closing up an odd shaped hole.
- [Instructor] Here I'm going to talk about fill surface.…You can either use the file downloaded,…or you can go in and select the fill function,…hit F1 on the keyboard,…download the file from your CATIA install documents,…and open it up.…Let's get to work.…Under the fill function,…you have outer boundaries and inner boundaries.…We're going to start out with outer.…For the outer boundaries you can pick as many elements…as you want, curves, surface edges, whatever it may be…to form a single closed contour.…
In this case I have one curve.…I picked that one curve.…With that, simply picking it, closes out the contour.…I hit my preview and there's my closed off surface.…If I had two, or three, or four, or ten curves,…just pick those in order and in a chain,…and you have your fill surface.…I also have the ability to specify inner boundaries.…I'm going to come in, pick a new inner boundary, preview.…That's my first inner boundary.…If I wanted an additional inner boundary, as you see here,…I come in, say, "Add new boundary."…
