The Trim vectors command allows the trimming of vector objects by their boundaries (or boundary edges), specified for one or several objects. Objects not intersecting with boundary edges can be cut at the point of their imaginary intersection. One object can be a boundary edge and a cut object.

If you press ENTER in the command prompt Select objects or [?]:,, all existing objects are transformed into boundary edges. When you select object to be cut, nearest objects are selected as edges.

You can trim objects without closing the command. Press SHIFT when you are selecting objects.

Command options:

?

Opens the additional options to select objects.

Fence

Selection of objects by a crossing line which can consist of several segments.

Crossing

Selection of objects with a crossing frame.

Project

Mode for cutting objects by intersection of their projections with the boundary in 3D space.

The option opens the prompt in the command line:

Enter a projection option [None/Ucs/View/] <None>:

Options:

None Only objects that are crossed by the specified boundary in 3D space are selected.

Ucs Defines the projections of objects in the XY plane of the current UCS and cuts objects which are not intersected by the boundary in 3D space.

View Defines the projections of objects in the direction of the specified view and cuts objects which are not intersected by the edge.

 

Edge

Specifies the cutting mode of objects by imaginary extension of the edge.

The option opens the prompt in the command line:

Enter an implied edge extension mode [No extend/ Extend] <No extend>:

Options:

No extend Switches off the cutting of objects by imaginary extension of the edge.

Extend Switches on the cutting of objects by imaginary extension of the edge.

eRase

Deletes the selected objects.

Back

Cancels the last change executed during performance of the command.

 

Selection of edge

Selection of object with pickbox

Selection of objects with crossing frame
