If your in 2006 your out of luck trying to get curvature on a loft in both directions. Also, while it is certainly theoretically possible to have that curve constrained to be curvature continuous, you will most likely get an overconstrained error message. 3D sketche constraints are just completely buggy.
That said, you probably can do without the curve an still be able to control the continuity break line with the Loft connectors. You need to RMB click while createing the loft and select "show all connectors". You should then be able to slide the connector from the break along the opposite boundary.
I am trying to create a surface tear feature in a curved surface. I am setting up the curves but am having trouble constraining the spline to match the curvature of the ajoining surfaces. (picture attached)
Is there a better aproach to building this feature
Can anyone help?
I believe the conditions you require on your part can be accomplished with SolidWorks 2007. I assume you are using SolidWorks 2006. The whats new document for SolidWorks 2007 shows this capability - both the requirement for the 3D spline to be curvature continuous with a surface and the surface fill to be curvature continuous to boundaries.
OK... I have never tried this, and this is coming from an Alias user. I don't think SolidWorks has a TRIM DIVIDE function. So, save the body of the mouse twice. In the first file, trim away the button, and in the second one, trim the body, thus leaving you the button curvature cont. to the body...
Just an idea...
