Close Edges

The Edge Menu is accessible only increation/editing mode.

Swap Edges is the next command; it is intended for columns and other objects that have two sides. Swap Edges is used to change the sides in in order to end stitching of that object on other side.

Reverse Nodes Order comes next; it changes the order of nodes. This is another method to change which stitch will be last. 

Use Delete Whole Edge command to erase whole edge and start its creation anew.

Create Second Edge command works on columns and objects with two sides. Create one edge and the first point of the second edge, then use this command. The second edge will be parallel to the first and the segment end will be placed after each element of edges.

Reduce Nodes simplifies edge containing large number of nodes by combining elements together and thus reducing also the nodes number on the edge.

Duplicate and Mirror command help to create symmetrical objects. Draw first part of the object and then use Duplicate and Mirror command to create second part of the object, which is symmetrical to the first part about the axis passing through the first and last node.

Duplicate and Mirror edge

Duplicate and Mirror Horizontally and Duplicate and Mirror Vertically work in a similar way, but the axis of the symmetry is vertical and horizontal straight line passing through the first node.

Creation of object symmetrical about both horizontal and vertical axes is explained on the following example:

  1. Create one quarter of the object.
  2. Use Duplicate and Mirror Vertically command.
  3. Use Duplicate and Mirror Horizontally command.
