OutputProperties: If is set to 'Input', the result object(s) will be have the same properties of the selected object. NrOfSections: Number of cross-sections used to remap the sweep at the destination rails. Normal: The plane Z direction used to intersect the cross-sections. Preview: Enables or disables the command 'draft' result.
- For open curves, you can change the direction by clicking over the curve direction arrow.
- For closed curves, you can change the direction by clicking in the opposite side of the curve direction arrow.
- For closed curves, you can change the curve start point by clicking over the curve direction arrow and drag it to the new location.
- The cross-section points can be changed by clicking over the point and drag it to the new location:
- If the point is at the origin rail, the points at the destination rail(s) will also change.
- If the point is at any destination rail, only the selected point changes.
