So I have Matt Lombard's "Solidworks Surfacing & Complex Shape Modeling Bible" and I'm working on the Ladle from Chapter 15.
I've brought in the 2 sketch pictures, made the projected curve, and even lofted the surface.
I'm now at the point of wanting to "thicken" the bowl area of the ladle (p. 284-285 for those who have the book). According to Matt, he used the "thicken" command & thickened it to the outside 0.1."
I'm at a loss, for no matter what I do, I cannot get this to work. Depending on the options I choose in the "Thicken" command (or in the command previous to that, which is the "Surface Knit" command, I end up getting 1 or both of the following "Rebuild Errors":
Failed to offset or face could not be deleted.
Unable to thicken the surface.
If someone could please explain what these errors mean, and maybe take a look at my file & see what I need to change, that would help me out a lot.
