I'm having trouble closing off the open end of this part. I used split lines and the delete face tool to remove portions of these surfaces, but I an unable to close off the edges near the fillet. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
May I suggest use the 'Sketch6' (used for split line) switch to a cut feature.
Surface are great to use, but require additional 'manual' effort that Solids will do for you... Solids 'Works'
Eric, Does this do what you want?
I rolled it back and split the surfaces before thickening based on making copies of the sketches you used.
That works pretty well, thanks Chris.
That looks good, but is there a way to maintain the curvature that was there? The opening in the part is supposed to sit around a person's heel.
Are you referring to 'Split line 8'? you can extrude cut that shape also.
Think of surfaces as construction geometry, tools to make solids.
