Use the deform feature to alter shapes of complex surface or solid models, either in a local area or globally, without concern for the sketches or feature constraints used to create the models.

Deform provides a simple way to change virtually any model, whether organic or mechanical, and is useful when creating design concepts or making geometric changes to complex models that would otherwise take too long using traditional sketch, feature, or history editing.

You can apply the deform feature to both SOLIDWORKS and imported models.

There are three deform types:
  • Point
  • Curve to curve
  • Surface push
