Aligning Faces

Align can modify any face to the reference face, matching position and surface type. Align has the following characteristics:

- Matching position.

  • Align will bring the change face to the same position as the reference face. Align can also offset the change face if one is already specified.

- Matching surface type.

  • Regardless of the surface type of the change face, it will be replaced by the surface type of the reference face.

- Part independent.

  • Align is effective when the reference face and change face are on the same part or different parts.

- Limitation.

  • Align fails if the underlying surface of the reference face cannot reach the change face.
