Obtaining Intersection Curves In SolidWorks(Illustrated Expression)

Intersection Curve tool in Solidworks sometimes can be very useful tool to obtain intersections between 3D or 2D geometries. In this article we will explain how to obtain intersections of features with ‘Intersection Curve’ command with a very basic example in Solidworks.

How To Use ‘Intersection Curve’ Command In Solidworks?

Click on ‘Intersection Curve’ command in Solidworks.

Consider about a situation that we want to obtain the intersection between a plane and a globe as shown above in Solidworks. To do it, click on little pop-up menu as shown by green box then click on ‘Intersection Curve’ command as shown by green arrow in Solidworks.
