I would like to know how this surface has been created in SW.
It is a double curved surface with a special cut-out pattern in it.
Anyone sets me free?
Kind regards, Edwin
Is there anybody who can help me? I'm trying to understand this geometry.
Paul Salvador is the guy to ask
Are you looking at the surface or the cut on them? Could you share the file to look at?
Looking from the pictures, it looks like that solid body has been patterned and then using subtract/indent, it has been removed from the main body.
Unfortunately I only have the pictures left as is and I'm trying to reproduce this in SolidWorks.
I do think that the surface is a result of an indent or subtract feature.
Still remains the question how is this cut-body/surface has been created
See attached, uncutted surface
Looks to me like it is a spline shape in one direction and an arc in the other.
If that is the case, the pattern might be created by using first at curve driven pattern (perhaps pattern bodies) and afterwards a circular pattern. Without knowing the geometry, I think I would pattern a cut-body to create one large body representing the negative surface. Then Combine-Subtract.
Could you upload what you have of SW part to get better answers?
Also thank you for the reply. Unfortunately I only have the pictures left as is.
I will upload the surface body without the cut-outs.
I already tried to create a curve driven pattern as a negative, without any satisfying results. It was hard for me to get all the patterned bodies aligned to each other and along the defining curve.
See attached file @ Deepak
a painful process but,..maybe... offset 0 and untrim, add face curves ... then adding the cuts or bodies to each iso curve and pattern along curves?
Thank you for the support.
I've tried to position a negative body and patterned it along the face curve. Next I patterned this pattern along the other direction.
Unfortunately the indent feature fails.
I'm trying to convert to 3DS max, try to free form the surface and convert it back to SW. Then use this adjusted body to indent the original surface body. See if it works
Instead of indent, try combine-subtract option.
