I need some help getting this shell to go all the way through the bottom of the part. I can't extrude cut through it after the shell command...
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
Hi Jake,.. you need to remove the other end (Face2) and it should cut.. (images attached)
I'm not in front of SW at the moment, but perhaps try picking the bottom face too in the Shell command to go all the way through using just the Shell.
Unfortunately this did not work. I get the error diagnostics page to pop up.
Hello Jake,.. yeah, that won't work.. imho, it would be better to add Loft14 before the earlier shell..
but, as is, you can also (what I did) not merge (separate body) and then Shell only that lofted body.. then, do a Offset Surface of the inside/shell.. and Combine the bodies together.. then cut using the offset surface. (image attached)
Thank you for the help. What you have there looks good. I'm having trouble replicating it though:
So I unmerged just Loft14.
Then I shelled from the top face 0.30 mm
Then surface offsetted 0.00 mm
But I can't do the surface cut. I get the “Operation failed due to geometric condition” error.
..maybe it's a simple cut direction.. so,.. "Flip"?
Paul, no that didn't work for me unfortunately. I still get the “Operation failed due to geometric condition” error.
I attached the part file. Could you tell me where I went wrong?
Ah wow it's always the simple things. Thank you so much this was the answer!
Glad it worked out!
