Hello there, I'm building a eating knife and using soft loft to finish the surface,
however after I finish and mirror the body I couldn't form it solid, not sure how to fix it...
here is the attach of the file, appreciated if anyone could help.
All you have to do is to go to insert>Feature>thicken choose the knitted surface body and then use the option "create solid from enclosed volume."
I haven't much experience with this type of modelling, but I manage to form a solid. But after rebuilding, new problems occured.
But I think the problem can be the profiles in the Surface-Lofts. When I started solving the problem, it was only the knife blade there where issues with. I found out that the profiles you have selected, didn't contain the same numbers of lines and splines. The one on the knife handle consists of 1 line, 1 spline and another line. The rest have only 1 line and 1 spline. I removed the relation on the knife edge and made a short line after the spline and down to the edge. You can say it forms the sharp edge of the knife. There was also a problem with the upper guide curve. I think it must start from the handle and go to the end of the knife. I made a new sketch and used that instead of Sketch 2.
I think this is aloso the case with the other Surface-Lofts.
Do this make sense??
