Creating 'Up to Last' Pads

This task shows how to create pads using the Up to last option.
Open the Pad3.CATPart document.
  1. Select the circle as the profile to be extruded.

  2. Click Pad.
    The Pad Definition dialog box appears and the application previews a pad with 10 mm as the default dimension value.

  3. Click the arrow in the geometry area to reverse the extrusion direction (or click the Reverse Direction button).

  4. In the Type field, set the option to Up to last.

    The last face encountered by the extrusion trims the pad.

    Optionally, click Preview to see the result.

  5. Click OK.
    The pad is created. The specification tree indicates this creation.

By default, the application extrudes normal to the plane used to create the profile. To see how to change the direction, refer to Creating Pads not Normal to Sketch Plane .
