The Silhouette command creates outline curves from a selected surface, extrusion, or polysurface object.


Select a surface or polysurface.


When you are looking at a model, the visual edge of the model is where the model stops and the background begins. This visual edge is sometimes called the silhouette or horizon of the model.
The silhouette direction is based on the current view. For example, if you look at a doughnut from the top, the silhouette is two circles. If you look at a doughnut from the side, the silhouette is an oval.

Tip: To create two-dimensional curves from the silhouettes, use the ProjectToCPlane command.
