Agreed, the replace face is a great tool, nice catch Kenneth!

Also look up replace face as well. To control your dome with more accuracy create a domed surface above the flat face of the M and use replace face. The dome command may not work as well with a hard M shape.

These are Features so use the Insert drop down, then select Feature and you will see the Dome, Deform and other creatable features.

Thanks all. The problem was that the functions did not show up at all on my menu. I found out later that I needed to go in and turn then on.

One other way I thought of doing this is to use Flip Side to Cut in the Cut Extrude Box. ( I still prefer the replace face method). Extrude a block the desired thickness, make your dome on the desired face of the block, then cut extrude the text and click the box flip side to cut. Like I said the replace face is still better because when you loft your own domed surface you get so much more control of the dome and replace face is a piece of cake…..

I am learning SW with the Personal Edition before purchasing.

I have a letter M that I have extruded with 20 degree draft and filletted the top edge. Now I want to modify the flat top surface slightly by bulging of doming the surface. If the face is 0.25 wide I want to add about 0.005 rise on the face to disrupt the perfectly flat surface.

I have read the help file and have found doming and deform. The problem is I cant find either function in my software. I believe that doming is on the features menu but I cant find it.

Any ideas on finding these two functions and any ideas on the best simple way to disrupt this surface?
