How to trim a quilt in Creo using curves?

Quilts in Creo can be trimmed in a few ways (see below).

  1. Adding a cut or slot as you do to remove material from solid features
  2. Trimming the quilt at its intersection with another quilt or to its own silhouette edge as it appears in a certain view
  3. Filleting corners of the quilt
  4. Trimming along a datum curve lying on the quilt

Today, we will see how to trim using curves. Defining a surface trim using a datum curve can be done by using a continuous chain of datum curves, inner surface edges, or solid model edges to trim a quilt
