Basic Tasks

The basic tasks you will perform in the Generative Shape Design workbench will involve creating and modifying wireframe and surface geometry that you will use in your part.

Creating Wireframe Geometry
Creating Surfaces
Performing Operations on Shape Geometry
Editing Surfaces and Wireframe Geometry
Using Tools

When creating a geometric element, you often need to select other elements as inputs. When selecting a sketch as the input element, some restrictions apply, depending on the feature you are creating. 

You should avoid selecting self-intersecting  sketches as well as sketches containing heterogeneous elements such as a curve and a point for example. 

However, the following elements accept sketches containing non connex elements (i.e. presenting gaps between two consecutive elements) as inputs, provided they are of the same type (homogeneous, i.e. two curves, or two points):
