Hi Guys,I would like to create the surface attached.Next to it is the same surface created in Solidworks as an example of what i'm after.This was done with network curves, but you are allowed to…Continue

Now that I have better understanding of what you want I re-worked your model again. I used tangent adjustable surface blends to create the main features. The trim curve was created with an adjustable tangent blend curve with the…"
Would love to see how you made that.....could you send through the file??
Could be the image however, but the bottom end doesn't look like half a circle.....looks a bit flattened out....?
I had to rebuild all your input curves and surfaces to reduce the point counts, smooth out the curvatures and get the right surface degrees.Then it was just a matter of doing a simple trim and sweep two rails.
I still think the multi blend…"
"Downloadd it and tried it....works great!
Seems to be just a few tools that are standard in rhino but allow much more control. Multi Blend is great though......so stupid its not standard in rhino as these are quite common surface problems.
"Sorry to hear. :-/ but there is much more the plug-in can do. You can download a test version which is working for three weeks, if you want to have a second look on it. I know it is expensive compared to Rhino, but it allows you to get clean…"
"There are two general approaches to this sort of modeling. The first is to extend curves so you can make a 4-sided surface, then Trim away one corner to make the 5th edge. Your model suggests the boundary curve could be the Trimmed edge, suggesting…"
"O yeah, btw.....i need to be able to mirror this so it needs to be nicely tangent as is the solidworks version.
Patch doesn't allow this.
Network curves allows you to get into the pop up console, but creates a crazy surface.
Hi Guys,I would like to create the surface attached.Next to it is the same surface created in Solidworks as an example of what i'm after.This was done with network curves, but you are allowed to select more than 4 sides or pick constraintsNetwork curves doesn't work as there is 5 sides.Patch doesn't make the edges tangent (and yes the box is ticked) and when you zoom in they are not connecting. You need like 50 spans to get anything kind of close.Any ideas on how to make this?See More
