What is the most rapid and precise method to create a cylinder or curved surface taking points from a stl file? I mean the stl file is a scanned part that contains holes and i would like to create cilinders or surfaces matching those holes by selecting the points of the facet "surface". I can do that by creating arcs and projet them to planes and then extrude but maybe is a quicker/better method.

Thanks. "Fit surface" is almost what I was looking for; it creates geometry shapes from the stl mesh but I cant control it by picking the points or zones myself, "fit surface" select the zones itself in fonction of the color based on curvature, the work can be done by tweaking radii threshold but not working well every time and I need to change parameters lots of times till it does then change it again to recognize a diferent area. I would like to pick the areas or points myself like it can be done in spaceclaim (min 1).
I think NX has the power to do because it does with the color selection just need a different method of imput. Can I select a manual method of impuct for "Fit Surface" or other command?
