I'm trying to loft the top edge of the surfaced shape up to the circle sketch. Having problems figuring it out.
Two configurations in the attached file, one with a loft, one with a boundary surface.
You have to use the SelectionManager, but because you have a number of bodies, you can't use any of the cool RMB selection methods, you have to select the open edges one by one, and then select the edges under the sketches requires Select Other in the middle of the SelectionManager, which is tricky to do without exiting the SelectionManager.
Thanks guys for the quick response. @Mark Unfortunately I couldn't opent he file as it appears to be done in a newer version. I'm using 2010-11 and not the newest 2012. @Matt I did something like what you suggested, and it seems to have worked. I seleected the edges in a top view sketch and "converted entitites". Then I lofted to the circle.
Sorry, I normally catch when I'm not on the same version as someone, my fault. All I did was move the circular pattern to the end of the feature manager tree, surface loft or boundary surface just a section of the lower profile to a section of the circle, then pattern both sections together.
I believe you should be able to open this file.
Thanks everyone! Well, I definitely know where to post any questions I have about Solidworks. I did get it to work using the convert edges (looks like I didn't even need to use a sketch after all). @Adasdasd Great explanation on the site.
Finished the model, which is a reconstruction of a cherry tomatoe package that I bought. Good way for me to practice. I'm working on reconstruciting a toy camera, and I'm stuck on the body, so I'll ask for help soon.
