Drape

The Drape command creates a surface through points defined at the intersection of objects and points projected toward the construction plane in the current viewport.

Steps

Note

Command-line options

AutoSpacing

Yes

All points within the draped surface are evenly-spaced at a distance set by the Spacing option. The lower the number, the more dense the surface will be.

Spacing

Sets the control point spacing.

No

Controls custom spacing for the points.

U/V

Sets the number of control points in the surface in the u and v directions.

AutoDetectMaxDepth

Yes

Stops the draped surface at what is automatically determined to be the farthest visible point within the rectangle.

No

Controls the custom depth setting.

MaxDepth

Sets the maximum depth the draped surface. This can be farther away from (1.0) and/or closer to the camera (0.0), providing complete or partial coverage of an object.

Drape Points

The DrapePt command creates a grid of point objects at the intersections of objects and points projected toward the construction plane in the current viewport.

Steps

Note:

DrapePt works over meshes or meshable objects (surfaces, polysurfaces, etc.). Non-meshable objects (curves, annotations, clipping planes, etc.) will be ignored.
