Abstract (Question)

How to create a sector surface in Mentat?

Description (Answer)

There is no direct way to create a sector surface in Mentat. However it could be done through "Revolve" command. Following are the steps:

- Draw a line

- In the "Coordinate System" form click "Align" to create a local coordinate system that its Y direction is perpendicular to the sector's surface.

 

(Note that in the "Revolve" command the axis of rotation is always "Y" axis, therefore a local coordinate system with Y axis perpendicular to the sector's surface is defined)

- Select "Revolve", enter the desired angle and select the line to create the sector
