Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Replace Face command, part of Surfacing with SOLIDWORKS.
- The Replace Face command is very much like an…Extrude Up to Surface however if you already have a…existing solid body and you want to replace one of the faces…that is where the Replace Face command comes into play.…So what I have here is I've got a rectangular block…on the bottom here and I've just created…an extruded surface directly above it.…Keep in mind that that surface completely covers…the block below it.…Go ahead, go up to Surfaces and Replace Face.…And right here I'm going to choose…the tangent faces for replacement,…and that's going to be this one right here.…
And then I'm going to choose which surface…I want to replace that with.…Click on that one there and click Ok.…And just that easily I have removed that top surface…and extended it all the way up…to this existing surface here.…Then I can go back and take this surface body here…and just hide it, and there's my resulting solid.…So a very simple and easy command…but very helpful if you need to replace a face…or just kind of extend something up to a surface…
