just want to get clear in my head what my options are for cutting into surfaces. so far i have the projected curve which can be a circle or spline and spline onto surface and then work on them.but what are my other options ??
What version of SolidWorks are you using?
You do not have to project curve onto the surface to use for trimming.
You can also trim one surface with another surface.
You can use surfaces to "trim" solids.
will try those ideas thanx
Take a look at how Surfaces were used to create this geometry. (see atttached *.sldprt file)
Edit: Expand the Solid Bodies folder at the top of the browser and turn on the visibility of the 2 hidden solid bodies.
You might also expand the Surface Bodies folder and turn all of those on.
Go through the feature tree step-by-step checking the sketches and the features.
Hmm, I see a couple of things I need to fix - back in a bit.
