Analyzing Silhouette Curve Options: Slides

The Slides option enables you to specify mold volumes that already account for undercut geometry zones in the reference
model.
• The system excludes silhouette curve creation at slides.

Recall that a silhouette curve is created in a mold model where the draft on the reference model instantaneously changes from positive to negative when viewed from the pull direction. Because undercut areas can also cause draft to instantaneously change, the system may also create the silhouette curve along undercut geometry zones.
The Slides option enables you to specify mold volumes that already account for undercut geometry zones in the reference model. When mold volumes are specified, the system automatically excludes these unnecessary edges and creates correct parting curves.
