    Trim surface trouble

    Lojze Bohor

      Hello,

       

      I am having difficulties using the trim surface command. I would like to trim the surface in order to get 4 points and than proceed to use Lofted surface feature. I am using 3D sketch and Spline on surface tool, only to  get 'Cannot trim due to error in on target body' error. The funny thing is, when i first tried Surface trim on a very similar model i had no truble using the command, and I cannot figure out why. I also tried making a parallel plane to TOP plane, drawing the spline and than projecting it to the surface only to get the same error. Could someone please tell me the right way to handle this problem?

          Hi Lojze,

          I hope you are doing well.

          It seems like your issue is caused by the Surface Knit. I can project a 2D spline on the boundary surface and trim it fine if I roll back between the Surface Knot and Boundary.

          If you go Tools->Check... you will see that you have some face to face trouble.

           

          I think this is the best I can do on one cup of coffee on a Saturday morning :-). Hope you fouond it helpful.

           

          Best regards,

          Lars
