The animation illustrates the fully reversible effects of trimming and capping offset loops.
When the offset of an edge represented by an ellipse or parametric curve intersects itself, the PGM will perform the appropriate trimming operation.
The animation illustrates the effects of offsetting spline curves with and without the PGM’s trimming capabilities.
Optional integration of the 2D DCM with the PGM enables additional capabilities, illustrated below:
The PGM allows dimensions to be placed on to loops of geometry.
The PGM trims offset loop geometry to maintain a consistent offset solution.
In this example, the height of a profile is modified interactively. As the distance dimension is increased, the lengths of the vertical edges in the base loop and its offset (top centre) diminish.
