- The Trim Surface command allows us…to trim one surface with another.…To do that, let's go ahead up here to Trim Surface.…The first thing I'm going to do is to make sure I'm choosing…the Standard Trim Type and then choose…my Trim tool, that's going to be any existing surface.…And I'm going to choose this one right here.…As soon as I do that, I have the option to either…Keep my selections or Remove them.…So I'm going to go ahead and Keep them.…In this case here I'm going to choose this one.…That way it will show you that over here…it's going to be removing this section here…and keeping this one here,…and the blue is what's trimming them away.…
So it's slicing that right in half.…As soon as I click on Ok, it removes this part back here…and keeps this part here, trimming with the surface here.…Now sometimes you might want to build a surface…like this one that you're not actually going to be using…in your model.…You're purely just going to be using that as your Trim tool.…Now if you happen to be doing that…you can always click on it, see where it is over here,…
