Chapter 30. Solid Modeling > Editing Solids

Editing Solids

Just as with all other AutoCAD objects, after you create solid objects you may want to edit them. Prior to AutoCAD 2000, editing solids inside AutoCAD was, at best, moderately difficult and often impossible. If, for example, in Release 13 or 14 you needed to decrease the diameter of a circular bore into a solid, you needed to first fill in the current bore and then re-bore by subtracting another cylinder with the smaller diameter. This was hardly solid editing, but rather re-doing your work.

In AutoCAD 2000, however, AutoCAD introduced a solid editing facility that enables you to easily edit, or modify, the size and geometry of AutoCAD solids. Through the new SOLIDEDIT command, you can move, rotate, taper, resize, or even remove features of a solid. Blends created with the FILLET command, for example, can be removed.
