Define Local Wrap Controls

Use the Wrap: Local tool to define local wrap size settings on selected surfaces.

The Wrap tool works for tessellated geometry. If the input is b-spline geometry, first convert to discrete geometry using the Convert tool.

Generally, local size definitions are required where you want to capture small features. During the wrapping process, selected surfaces will be refined locally.

  1. From the Geometry ribbon, click the Wrap > Local tool.

    Figure 1.
  2. Select surfaces.
  3. In the dialog, define wrap size settings.
  4. From the guide bar, execute the command in the following ways:
    • Click to confirm your selection and remain in the tool.

      This allows you to continue creating instances and helps you visualize and edit instances with the legend.

    • Click to confirm your selection and exit the tool.
  • The wrapper will be able to preserve gaps between parts/surfaces if the defined size is 1/3 the gap size.
  • As a rule of thumb, define the minimum size as 1/3 of the smallest feature you need to capture.
