I imported curves and converted to 3d sketches to loft them together. It used to work before with the same technique but now i'm stuck and cannot understand why the invalid notification?
Would appreciate guidance
Shar,.. the size/scale of these are extremely small.. maybe the import scaled at the incorrect factor?..
There is a problem with those imported curves. I suggest creating a new 3D sketch (for each curve) and using the spline tool to connect to key points on the imported sketch. Now you will have good geometry for your loft.
Hi Bill, Thanks for the reply
Each imported curve is already on a different 3d sketch, and I also have guide curves (not included in the part) which did not help the geometry.
Your issue is that those 3 imported sketches have problems with them. This is why SolidWorks is giving you that error message.
My recommendation is to use those imported curves only as references. You need to create 3 new 3D sketches (using splines) in order to get valid shape geometry.
In the new 3D sketch, start a spline, then click on the imported shape multiple times to locate each of the major spline points. Then adjust the spline shape to get a close as possible to the imported curve.
Hi Paul, Thanks for the tip. It did make a difference (i was at mm instead of cm unit), though i don't understand why solidworks would mind the scale..
I know get the following error: Cannot knit sheets together
I managed using surface loft.
Thanks for the help!
