Location: Create>Vector>Surface Grid<p class="Body-Text> Use the Surface Grid function to extract tangent and normal vectors from a selected surface. The parameters of the surface grid are configured through the "Surface Vector Grids" dialog box. The settings available from this dialog are explained below.
Using the Function:
The Surface Vector Grids dialog appears, from which you are able to specify vector options and a vector spacing method.
Specify the type of vector you intend to extract from the surface.
Vector Spacing Method
Specify a spacing method for the extracted vectors.
Just Draw the Vectors Temporarily
When selected, the vectors will only appear temporarily. That is, they will disappear as soon as you select another surface, or select BACKUP or ESCAPE. They remain under Immediate Mode Commands so that you are able to use the View features (Zoom, Pan, etc).
NOTE: Depending upon what was specified for a spacing method in the Surface Vector Grids dialog, you might be required to provide addition specifications.
