Surface offset issue

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I am struggling with an offset surface issue. When I make two surfaces and join them, the result of the offset is not as wanted. Everything is correct except on the corner where these surfaces meet each other. How can I solve that?

This is a common problem that unfortunately cannot be fixed with a magic wand, i wish. As you can see in the attached image from solidworks, this issue exists long before you did the combine and round. I am comparing to solidworks to prove that this is not a problem with Evolve but a generic parasolid behavior. Offsetting the source objects itself creates a mismatch with boundaries. One way to fix this issue is to build the interior surface just like you build the exterior and then create lofts between them. The second rather tedious and unpopular way is to delete the construction history of the offset and rebuild it.

I will try to send you a file with a rebuild geometry by tomorrow.
