- Planar surfaces are pretty straightforward…and all we really need to do is tell SOLIDWORKS…which edges we want to use to go ahead and create a surface.…To get started let's go up to planar surface up here,…and it's asking me for the bounding entities.…You have a little q here showing you it's looking…for one enclosed boundary.…So I can chose this sketch right here,…I can choose an edge itself…and notice it chooses the automatic boundary,…and just that quickly,…I create a surface just using that little…square or rectangle there.…Then I can also come over here and do it again…under planar surface,…I can choose an interior edge here…and fill in the holes, for instance.…
It's only a surface here so you look at the bottom,…you can still see it's an open hole.…Or if you come over here I have a bunch of surfaces here,…I again can go back over to surfaces, planar surface,…and I can choose individual edges here.…As I go around this,…notice it stars filling it in and I just chose those two,…and then with a triangle,…but I can continue my way around…
