Trimming with Power Trim

You can use Power trim to trim multiple, adjacent sketch entities by dragging the pointer across each sketch entity.

To trim with the Power trim option:

  1. Right-click the sketch and select Edit Sketch.
  2. Click Trim Entities Tool_Trim_Entities_Sketch.gif (Sketch toolbar) or Tools > Sketch Tools > Trim.
  3. In the PropertyManager, under Options, select Power trim PM_trim_power_trim.gif.
  4. Click in the graphics area next to the first entity, and drag across the sketch entity to trim.

    The pointer changes to pointer_power_trim.gif as it crosses and trims the sketch entity. A trail is created along the trim path.

  5. Continue to hold down the pointer and drag across each sketch entity you want to trim.
  6. Release the pointer when finished trimming the sketch, then click PM_OK.gif.
