I need help learning how to Squish the ends of this pipe. Thank you!
Loft/Sweep question this should get you started.
Paul Salvador has shown this.
Revolved Boundary Surface
Thanks everybody, should be able to make that work. Seems like it should easy to walk out to the vise and just crank it shut. Maybe Solidworks 2021 could have a vise function!!
What you say is physical representation where as you asked for a graphical representation. If everything is done by one person graphical representation is not necessary which is not always possible.
I guess the "vice" solution would be Deform, you can get something ugly out of it pretty fast. Heres a quickie:
Wouldn't pass that on in any serious project though. That's not to say you can't get anything nice out of Deform in capable hands.
Much better than mine. Can you post that part? I'd like to take a look at it.
It had occured to me to try what you did from your screen shot but I get self intersecting curves, even when I try recreating the feature in your model...I'll have to play with it some more.
The file Paul Salvador shared here: How to Wrap onto a tapered curved surface?
is a nice example on how to use deform.
Not perfect by any means, but it may pass as a representation.
