elephantoraurus posted a topic in General DiscussionHi guys, I've been trying to figure out a way to Project a flat curve onto a bent surface so that the curve will actually wrap around it. Alternatively I would also be quite happy if it were possible with a surface. So far I have only Kind of managed to do this by using the Stretch tool and choosing a surface to Stretch along an extracted curve of the surface. This however distorts the original surface and since I don't know the exact measurements of the bent surface, ( customer file) it won't automatically use the entire lenght of the extracted curve... In General I am not very happy with this method and know that in other CAD programms there is a more simple way to Project the curve so that it bends around a surface. Is there an alternative to the Stretch tool in Solidthinking as well? I have attached a simple Image of the Problems that I have and what I'm trying to achieve: I am trying to get the (experimental) curve with "teeth" to follow the curvature of the Long surface. The part on the left is the attempt using the Stretch tool together with the extracted Profile curve. This is not a clean Job, is there another way to get this done?? Thank you very much for your help and I am looking Forward to Hearing from you ! Nick
Hi guys, I'm quite new to evolve so there is a chance that this issue can be very easily solved I was modeling along when suddenly I realized that every single bit of trimmed surface was showing in the model. The trims are all still in effect and show no errors in the construction tree. Every loft and blend line is still connected, however the parts of the surfaces which were supposed to be trimmed away are clearly showing I also ticked"keep only exterior" on every single one of them, so that cannot be the issue. Can someone please help me resolve this issue? I've been going crazy about it for the past three days... Thank you guys in advance. Here's an image so you have a better understanding of what I'm trying to say. The connections on the right look alright, because they are coving up the part that is showing. On the left you can clearly see, that the sweep rails extend further than the trim curves(arcs)
Hello together I recently started with Inspire and Evolve. I constantly run in the problem, that I'm not able to trim or use boolean functions in my models. Do you have any idea, what I'm doing wrong? You can find my file in the dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jtxcdzupsflc7km/1900611_2.evo?dl=0 Thank you very much. Kind regards Ben
