    Smoothing problem

    Florent Meyer


      I'm trying to create a second surface between the 2 sketches, then 2 more flat surfaces and finally knit the whole to create a thin volume.

      I managed to do it already but since I changed some splines I get an error... that the smoothing can't be finished.

      I really don't find what's wrong this time...

      Here is the model.

      Thanks for your help.

          If you changed some splines then you probably moved or deleted something that had relations to the later features. Your Surface-Plan5 sketch has a lot of dangling relations from other geometry that no longer seems to be there.

              Thanks for your quick answer !


              Here is a new version I made.

              First, I don't think it deals with broken relations since it won't smooth between sketches even without the guide (purple) splines I told I had changed (sketch 3D10). And I have no errors now.

              I know for Surface-Plan5, I changed it, but the thing I want to smooth is before Surface-Plan5.

              My explanations aren't enough precise... Let's retry.


              On the new model, I have Surface-Lissage15 which works. I would like to have a second Surface-Lissage which is almost the same, using the other contours on the same sketches (sketches 11 and 41), just before or after Surface-Lissage15, and with the 2 hooks on the back.


              Thank you.

                  It looks like you should take a slightly different approach to this. Instead of trying to do the whole profile in 2 moves, I broke it down in 3 moves to get the surfaces you are looking for. I did this with 2 loft surfaces and 1 extrude surface. Because of some anomalies I had to trim the ends of these surfaces to everything to knit together and make a solid.
