    How do you thicken a convex boundary surface?

    Tim Hoehman

      I'm trying to get a thicken operation to work on this surface model.  I can

      thicken the aft and forward lofts but my problem comes with the convex boundary

      surface.  I have played with various settings on this boundary surface but can't

      get it to thicken to the outside.  As it sits, I can get it to thicken to the

      inside, .02 inches.  I have knitted all three surfaces together and nothing

      seems to help.  Any help on thickening a convex boundary surface?  Or otherwise

      changing my modeling style to achieve the same intent?  I even thought it might

      be possible to model the boundary surface as a solid but the geometry is not as

      clean.
