Is it possible to overcome this issue where I cannot use shell function after dome ? (see attached image)
The dome is on an eliptical surface.
So far shell seems to ignore what happened before
Thank you for your help !
What SW version are you using?
Can you upload your file?
I'm not having the same issue:
I am using 2019 SDK version.
Here is my file
Thak you for your quick answer !
I don't understand why, but it's related to the depth of the dome.
Increase the dome height (24 is shown) and the shell works fine.
It could also be related to the section I outlined in red.
At a shallow dome depth, this "feature" may be too small and is causing the dome to
When I reduce the dome to the original 4, the shell works, but displays this warning:
I don't have the time for much more, but why a 3D sketch?
And this part's tree can be simplified.
It seems strange to me too.I will look into the section outlined that must come from the 3D sketch.
I used 3D sketch because because of the tilted plan from which I extrude first.
But I will look into an other way to do it.
Thank you very much for your help,
I'm sure there are several ways to make the sloped cylinder, but in the attached:
I created the extrude on the Top plane and selected one of the other planes for the cut sketch.
I did a convert entities on the top cylinder edge and a side silhouette edge.
I drew an angled line and trimmed to get my cut triangle.
The extrude cut was through all-both.
Then the dome and then the shell.
Good luck to you,
The shell issue is fixed !
It was indeed due to 3D sketch that leaded to the section you outlined.
Thank you for your explanation, I will look into it.
In the original extrude there is a small sliver face that is left. This small sliver face makes for that strange pie shaped surface on the dome. I went back to the original extrude and used delete face (delete and patch) to fix that sliver face and then everything worked as you wanted.
I used delete face because it was quick and I didn't want to spend the time investigating why the sliver face in the extrude. It's very possible you could fix the original extrude and not have to use delete face.
Hi Theo Barottin There is a mistake here.see attached video.
