For database surfaces only, the U,V examine function turns the mouse cursor into a UV parametric line hiliter or probe.

Wherever the cursor is located, constant U and V lines will be displayed. Click the right or left mouse buttons to have a UV location remain displayed while you continue to hilight other values.

This feature allows you to easily view the true shape of the parametric lines which define your surfaces. Unusually shaped parametric coordinates can affect the initialization of Parametric TFI domains. Refer to the Structured Domains and Blocks, Attributes Tab, Initialization section for more details on available TFI methods.

The Cuts tab is not available for the U,V function. However, the Extrema tab is available, showing XYZ coordinate locations of the maximum and minimum UV coordinate values.
