For database surfaces and curves, the Boundary Proximity examine function displays the closest point distance between the boundaries of the selected surfaces or curves. This function can aid in the determination of an appropriate tolerance when assembling models.


Tip: When database entities are not easily assembling into a model, use the Boundary Proximity examine function to find the largest gap between surfaces or quilts. Use this value as a guide for your new Edge Tolerance. Refer to the Models section for more details on model assembly.

The Examine Task: Functions, Boundary Proximity Example
The Boundary Proximity examine function quickly indicates boundary gap issues and sizes prior to model assembly.
