Move Face PropertyManager

You can offset, translate, and rotate faces and features directly on solid or surface models.

To open the Move Face PropertyManager:

Click Move Face (Mold Tools or Features toolbar) or Insert > Face > Move . You can also right-click a face and click Move Face, or select Move Face on the Direct Editing CommandManager tab.

Move Face

  Offset Offsets selected faces or features by a specified distance.
  Translate Translates selected faces or features by a specified distance in a selected direction.
  Rotate Rotates selected faces or features a specified angle about a selected axis.
 
Instant3D functionality supports editing of Move Face features. Click the Move Face feature or face and use the Instant3D arrow, dimension manipulator, or triad to edit the Move Face feature.
Face(s) to move Lists the faces or features you select. Use the Select Connected Faces pop-up toolbar to help you select various faces. See Using Selected Connected Faces.
  Copy Copies faces and features using the Translate and Rotate commands. You can use Instant3D functionality, such as the triad and rulers, to position and edit the Move Face features. This option is useful when you modify imported geometry. You cannot create disjoint bodies using this option. Video: Move Face - Copy
