hi im trying to convert a suface to solid with an eclipsed shell but it wont let me do it ive attached the pictures showing what im trying to do
in the first picture the dimensions are inputted the second picture is the lines converted to a surface
im not sure how to convert the lines or the surface to a solid
it says object intersect itself when i try to thicken
is there a posibility that you can create this object staight from 2d lines to 3d solid like and eclipsed press pull comand that turns it into a streched sphere though that kinda still doesnt help me its a pointed object and thats probably why im having so much trouble
i had a look at the solid but what i need or rather want is a complete solid so i can figure out its volume and wieght and seing as this is an eclisped shape and then section, then revolved i dont think there is a way of mathmaticaly doing this via an equation even with todays great people behind us that made mathmatics what we know of it today
what im trying to get at is there isnt and equation for the volume of that wierd shape to my knowledge that hasn't got a name yet lol what it is is a tip off a bullet a very large one and i need to find the wieght in brass
hopfully that confusing mess of words explained it
ill guess i have to machine it first and wieght it on a really accurate scale, emphasis on really after i get it to nice and accurate machine specs
thnx for your help
wait how did you make the green thing and is it accurate to the 2d drawing cause if it is i love you and want to know how you did it
why can't you just use the REVOLVE command ? This produces a solid by revolving a profile around an axis.
Ah, I just realised something. What the command produces depends on if the profile is closed or not. If it is a closed polyline for example, it will produce a solid, but if it is not closed it will create a revolved surface.
tried that but not sure if i did it right i used the polyline thing and then tried to revolve it but it still wouldnt work i think i might be the way im doing it, i has no idea. though its a really mathmaticaly wierd shape and i have no idea how to turn it into a solid with volume
