People, I was playing with Solidworks and trying to modelling a racing car seat. It's almost finished but I got stucked while trying to fill a surface. I've tried with a bunch of diffents way but I couldn't. Can anyone help me?
Can anyone help me?
Yee... If you had the 2012 version then I could...
But "they" are coming!
Sir, I attached Parasolid version.
What surface you want to fill?
I think this is the surface needs to be filled. It can be filled before that number of clean up works have to be done.
In the front. The back of the head.
In this place you have duble surface!
Yeah. I mistake while offseting. But that's not the problem.
It is problem because make errors in Parasolid file
Yes, you have right, you playing with SW.
I can't see original file (native) for check where you make mistakes.
Ok, thank you,sir.
You made me laugh with that "sir". So having a short free time I prepared a tutorial on how to rescue your car seat.
1. Delete selected faces2. Extend the selected face (upper edge)3. Thickening the surface (35 mm)4. Create a new sketch, convert selected edges.5. Create a surface.6. Extend the surface7. Offset selected faces (1.1 mm)8. Use a surface to cutout the solid body9. We have a problem! Selected faces have different widths (it looks bad)10. Offset selected edges by length the same as orange edge, Use "Offset edge on surface"11. New 3D sketch. Create a "spline on the surface".12. Use items from points 10 and 11 to divide the faces and remove the marked ones13. A new spline in a 3D sketch.14 Create a surface (Loft) and "Knit" it. Two problems in the marked place.15. First is the short edge, second - inner corner in the surface of symmetry.16. New 3D sketch. Draw a spline on the surface from the short edge to the inner corner. Use it to divide your face.! 7. Delete selected face18. Create a sketch to create the surface and "Knit" it to the main surface19. Create a point on the edge (5 mm)20. Use this and the edge to create a plane21. Use this plane to divide the selected faces22. Delete the selected faces23. New 3D sketch. Two splines tangent to construction lines that are perpendicular to the selected face24. Create a surface (Loft) and "Knit" it25. Use "Fill surface"26. Use "Fill surface" again27. Your car seat after adding curves and mirrors
28. Tea and smile
Now you can mor "play" wit surfaces
I think that i new SW version is possible do it faster and easier.
For produce your model have to much bad faces, but for have a fun is OK
I copied the edges (convert edges and fit spline) for the surface area you wanted to fill. On the spline, I set it to Show Curvature Combs.
You can see there that 'wiggle' alot and very dramatically. This indicates patch and fill operations are going to either take a long time to compute or fail altogether.
Just an evaluation trick you can keep up your sleeve.
This model might be better served using hybrid surface/solid techniques. Once you get a good surface you like.. thicken it up to create a solid. Then use your additional surfaces to trim up the solid. Just an idea.
