Subject: Creating wedges



You can create three-dimensional wedges consisting of five surface planes. The base of the wedge is always parallel with the xy plane of the current UCS with the sloped face opposite the first corner. The height is always parallel with the z-axis. You posi­tion the wedge by specifying either a corner or the center of the wedge. You deter­mine the size of the wedge by either specifying a second corner and the height; defining the wedge based on a cube having a given length; or specifying the length, width, and height.

   1   Do one of the following to choose Wedge ():

   On the ribbon, choose Draw 3D > Wedge (in Draw 3D Solids).

   On the menu, choose Draw > 3D Solids > Wedge.

   On the Draw 3D Solids toolbar, click the Wedge tool.

   Type wedge and then press Enter.

   2   Specify the first corner of the base.

   3   Specify the opposite corner of the base.

   4   Specify the height.

To create a wedge as a 3D mesh

   1   Do one of the following to choose Wedge ():
