Everytime I wrap my sketch it does weird things. I have tried both analytic and spline both giving odd results or not being able to complete the wrap. Any other ideas?
Can you upload the part with the sketch??
Here it is. I can get almost all the way around with the spline setting but once done it flips creating a weird look. And with analytic it wraps around the fillet.
Michael,.. it will not do the complete perimeter.. if you omit one of the back corners, it will, but you'd need to add the remaining doing another copy and choose the other corner.
..and, as you will find,.. your total sketch overlaps.. but, still it does not matter..
..the workaround.. is to split the back face into 3 faces.. and omit the center face.
Not the prettiest, but ooh la la?
I have attached the model - there are two warnings, because it apparently "thinks" that these were done as an emboss or a deboss, so it is suggesting to do it as a scribe (shhhh . . . don't tell anyone, but that is what it is!)
The forums are taking all of my best stuff that I had set aside for slugme this year . . .
When you create your initial sketch, use "Fit Spline" to make it one continuous face around the outside - it makes wrapping a lot easier . . .
edit: I had to do the wrap as two steps, it didn't seem to want to do it all at once.
Agree, Fitspline is wonderful for this!..
..and I also had tried it earlier.. but,.. no enchilada, no way, no how... I threw in the towel.
...+, it has yellow flags for each and it gives us a nonsensical explanation..
....so,.. how the heck were you lucky enough to get this to work!?
I have finally figured out how to get the magic fairy dust into the side of the CPU, so that it hits the SOLIDWORKS .dll files just right . . .
I kept trying the wrap, and one side would work, so i decided to convert entities and convert some to construction, and somehow it worked!
Really weird . . . I swear that I've been able to get some really funky stuff to wrap around square tubing, so i thought this should be a piece of cake, and it proved to be a sweet challenge . . .
How about split the face behind? ( A tiny split )
Thank you everyone for the insights.
I finally ended up do a split line on the front and back of the buffet, and then did a wrap twice. SUCCESS.
