Object Settings for Curves and Surfaces

By deactivating the Create Polygons Directly import option, Generator objects, responsible for converting IGES files to polygon objects, will be created. This allows the user to make subsequent changes to numerous functions. The next image shows imported IGES files as Generator objects in the 3D preview.

Import with Generator objects

The Object icons only differ slightly: Objects whose Object icons have a dark outline are primitive curves and surfaces. The shape of the trimmed surface is derived from the child objects.

Object 499_ has been deactivated to demonstrate. The surface of the object displayed will therefore not be trimmed and the original surface, 465_ is visible.
