Rationalize the model

In order to remove all unused sloped planes, frames, grids, and construction lines in your model, you can use the Rationalize command. If necessary, the Rationalize command also allows you to update all grid and construction lines to extend only a short length beyond the point where they are required. After running the command, you can see a summary of the changes in the Process Window.
