Shape Feature SOLIDWORKS

This time we will learn to create Shape Feature with simple and quick.
Creates a deformed surface on a model by expanding, constraining, and
tightening the selected surface.
A deformed surface is flexible, much like a membrane. It can be
expanded, constrained, and tightened using the sliders on the Controls
tab in the Shape Feature dialog box.
To create a shape feature:
Sketch one or more entities that you can optionally use to constrain
the shape feature. You can create the constraining entities directly
on the face or on a plane. 

Valid entities are:
Points (endpoints, vertices, and so on)
Sketches (including points, curves, and open or closed contours)
Edges
Click Shape on the Features toolbar or click Insert, Features, Shape.
In the dialog box:
Select a face on the model for Face to shape. You can select one face only.
Select a sketch for Constrain.
You do not have to constrain the shape feature - this is optional.
To have the shape feature edges form a tangent relation with the
boundary, select Maintain Boundary Tangents. With this option cleared,
the shape feature edges do not adjust the angle as they approach the
boundary.
