Dear SW Specialists,
What is the best way to connect two surfaces (from edge to edge)?
There is distance between them.
Tangency connection would be welcome.
I need after connecting surfaces use thickness operation.
use what best for you
As Dor says, Boundary or Fill are good places to start. These may give you undesireable results though as the edges are quite complex. if they do, I would suggest adding 4 sketches splitting the intended suface into quarters, do the to opposing quarters and then fill the ones in between.
Can you post your model?
I couldn't use fill surface.
You are trying to do to much in one feature. Break you transition surfaces into smaller chunks and I think you will have better luck.
What is this that you are trying to create? May help us offer you a better workflow.
It is part of hand protector for roller skates - my own vision. On 99% it will never be produced (or maybe any 3d printing). I would like to improve my Solidworks skills and I was trying to play with surfaces. In my job unfortunately I use simple modelling and assemblies but I know that world od Solidworks is so huge and interesting .
I've added 2 sections to the model showing what I was talking about. You'll probably want to play with how it is broken up to get the cleanest possible result.
You can use Boundary surface and that should give you a nice transition between the two surfaces. But the quickest method would be to use the fill surface option.
I split the surfaces in half and added guide curves in the center (yellow) and two more on the back side (red)
and did two surface lofts. You can add more guide curves to take more twist out or use arcs to round it off.
I am on sw 2012 so attached is a pic.
I divided these surfaces.
Making connected was possible but I have problem with thicken operation.
Unfortunatelly surface without thicken operation is not very useful..
I see that connected surfaca in some places isn't nice.
Thank you all for help.
I am trying still to win with this problem.
If you add more guide curves where it does not look good will help.
Just make sure the lines or arcs are connected to the edges.
Greg, Another option,
I thickened the two surfaces then did a loft.
You can make the entire thing in a single boundary surface, but you will have to use connectors to control it properly. A "smeared" surface like what you are showing will cause problems down the road with things like fillets and shell, or offset. Just right click on the loop and select "add connector", then manipulate the ends of the connector until it takes the shortest path. You can add as many connectors as you need.
Best of luck.
First of all split the faces with the sketch then make an offset surface and make one more sketch and offset 10mm and then attach both the surfaces with loft command
