Design SuiteChanging the slab modifier



Edit Modifiers

Context menu

The original editing object used to clip or add to the slab can be modified; this includes symbols inserted into the slab.

To edit the slab modifier:

Select the command to enter object editing mode.

The editing object is selected.


Move, delete, or reshape the editing object (new editing objects cannot be added, however, except for symbols). The slab is locked and cannot be edited.

To edit the component settings of the modifier, right-click on the modifier and select Edit Slab Addition Settings or Edit Slab Subtraction Settings from the context menu. Depending on whether the modifier is a 2D or 3D addition or a subtraction modifier, the Add Shape to Slab dialog box opens, the Clip Shape from Slab dialog box opens, or the Add 3D Object to Slab dialog box opens. Choose whether the modifier affects the entire slab, or select the components it modifies. 3D clipping objects and symbols do not have any options to edit.

Exit object editing mode to return to the drawing.
