    How to copy an arc from one part to another part in an assembly?

    Jason Ph

      Ladies and gentleman I need some help again. I have two parts in an assembly.

       

      The look like this:

      Once mated they should fit like this:

      My problem is that the profile of the two parts are not accurate, so there is a gap (too much clearance) between the two parts.

      Here's a closeup of a corner:

      The profile of the smaller(inner) part is accurate. How do I modify the profile of the bigger/outer piece to accurately match the profile of the inner piece?

      I tried to edit sketch of the bigger piece by modifying the arc radius, but the lines and tangent points began to move around on me.

      Any help would be appreciated.
