Draft Angle Analysis

The DraftAngleAnalysis command visually evaluates surface draft-angle using false-color analysis.

Draft angle is often used to design injection-molded parts that must eject from molds.

Steps

  1. Select objects.
  2. In the Draft Angle dialog box, set the angle for the color display.
  3. Adjust the density of the mesh if the level of detail is not fine enough.
