DesignSpark Mechanical support zone, Zendesk, is packed with tutorials, videos and guides to help you make the most of our free-to-download 3D CAD software, which is still one of the best out there!
In this article, which you can find in the DSM Zendesk tutorials area, we take a look at PULL mode options.
Why are some of the PULL mode options greyed out?
Some of these options only work with boundaries (edges) of a 3D object. Make sure the edge is selected instead of a face.
Take this circular shape for example. The 5 options in the left tab are disabled as the only a face is selected.
3 options are now enabled which allow you to extrude, copy or pivot an edge.
Try pulling this shape to a cylinder and select the circumference; the round, chamfer, etc. All 5 operations will be automatically enabled now allowing you to round & chamfer edges.
There’s plenty of tutorials, videos and guides to help you get to grips with DesignSpark Mechanical 3D CAD software and you can find them all here in Zendesk.
