Trim and Extend middle boundary members

If you are a customer and use the legacy boundaries in planar milling, please read on.

 

As we continue our multi-release effort to update the boundary user interface, we are looking at the functionality available when a boundary is defined within a planar milling operation. I have a question for customers about trimming and extending open boundaries.

 

The most common task we see is to move the start point of the first member, and/or the end point of the last member. This will be updated to a new UI, like you see in boundary groups today.

 

However, it is also possible to trim or extend a member in the middle, which actually removes other boundary members. Does anybody still use this functionality? If so, could you explain the use case?

I Didn't know you could do that.

I suppose that answers for me.

It can be usefull whenever You made a long selection of members, copy the op and get rid of soms end or start members.
It would of course be even better of You could deselect members.

Patrick,

I understand how this works. Is this a common practice in your workflows today? What would be the impact if it was no longer possible?

Impact would be more/reselecting boundaries. Nothing dramatically
