ShowEdges command

Highlights edges of surfaces and polysurfaces.

Surface edges can be either trimmed or untrimmed.

Trimmed edge

If trimmed, the underlying surface will generally extend past the edge.

Untrimmed edge

An edge that is not the result of a trim curve on the surface. The 'natural' edge or outer bounds of a surface. The underlying surface will not extend past an untrimmed edge.
