The tool DressupPathBoundary allows restricting the extent of a path to a smaller part of the object. For example, restricting a profile path to just one face or part of the model.


  1. Select a path such as contour, profile or pocket operation.
  2. Select the Path → Path Dressup → Boundary option from the menu.


  • Create Box
  • Create Cylinder
  • Extend Model's Boundary Box: A very convenient way to limit a path is to select this option and use negative values.
  • Use Existing Solid


  • The Create Box option only sets the dimensions of the box, not its origin. To alter its origin it is necessary to adjust its Placement in the tree view.
