Hi guys,

 

I am having an issue trying to create some surface imprints. I have a handle which i wish to add rubber detailing to. To do this I have created cuts in the surface and moved / thickened the cut surface area into a thin rubber over mold. This has work pretty well for one section but for the section rubber more complicated rubber area i can not surface thickening to work or surface off-setting.

 

Is there another way i could try to do this? Here is a link to the model so you can see exactly what i am trying to do: Dropbox - handle_.SLDPRT

 

This is what I am trying to achieve: Rubber pad cut 1mm into surface and protruding 1mm out from surface. The rear rubber has worked fine. The front rubber patch will not allow me to thicken and offset surfaces properly.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks , Will
