Hi every one,
I want to draw with spaceclaim a reflector whose profile is a parabola. Typically define the focus, the depth, and with the "pull" tool make an extrusion to get the surface. I don't see how to simply draw this parabolic profile. Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks Guilin for your answer,
I was thinking of a more intuitive solution, a mechanic's method, who has to draw an object that will be produced. Creating a parabola with its focus and depth for example directly in spaceclaim, like for a circle for example:
Solidworks for exemple is very powerfull for this.

Parabolic mirror is easy to do with the "surface structure obkect". You will need to have two, with the inner one to be air so to override the solid.
You can also use Solidworks and then import it.
