I'm trying to put this small bulge (pic3) into this fiberglass piece and I'm not too familiar with surfacing. I tried to use freeform but that was a mess. The surface is a non constant curve. Could anybody point me in the right direction?
You need Paul Salvador - the surfacing guru - he's in the west coast, still in election shock - but should be on later...
ok,.. that was funny!
Hope he'd be OK with the results now
Try making a solid there, add fillets and then shell.
Shane,.. a few ways (offset/trim/split..) but first,.. for that corner using solids, ....sketch the bulge profile,.. split the surface,.. offset 0 (copy).. thicken.. and fillet/blend..
I did a couple of layouts and got adhd side track .. it's a fun blend area..
you can copy the surface from picture 3 and adapt it to the pic 1 and 2
What I mean here is put 2 part in the same assembly, edit the part (pic 1 &2) you want to modify and offset the surface (0 distance) from the part with pic3
Put in an axis (nearly vertical) where the bulge disappears at the front. Copy/rotate the zebra striped surface a little bit out. Trim away and blend with loft or boundary surface. Fillet as needed.
