Irregular Facets

Question asked by Jonas Buck on Mar 6, 2014

Hi there,

I'm trying to build a curved geometry that consists of irregular planar surfaces.

 

I've created a curved surface as a guiding surface and then started with a 3D Sketch. In the 3D sketch I constrained each point of the facets to be on the guide surface and then constrained the facet to be planar through additional centerlines.

Is there an easier way to create those planar surfaces (e.g. constraining 5 corner points to be on a plane that is not along x, y or z)?

 

After creating the 3D sketch the next step would be to fill the surfaces.

I would like to use the planar surface fill, yet the contour select does not allow me to select specific segments out of the 3Dsketch.

A work around would be to create for each facet a new sketch and to copy the specific sketch entities but that seems very tedious.

 

Any suggestions on how to fill the surfaces?

 

Thanks for your help,

Jonas
