HELP! Placing a 3D Object raised on the surface of another 3D object

Hello!

 

I've already started using the AutoCad 3D. I got a question that I hope someone can help me out.

 

I am just wondering to know how to put a 3D object on top of the another 3D object in autocad"! E.g.,I want to put a 3d object of one leaf (raised 1") on top of the vase, so that the edges of the leaf are placed completely on the surface of the vase.

I extruded the leaf 1" first, then tried to copy it on a solid cylinder of a vase, but it didn't work!!! It seems to be simple, maybe not!

 

Would you please let me know whether the Autocad can handle such this thing! Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Thanks in advance and best wishes,

 

Rihana

This is fairly easy. Having your object (vase) to place on, make scaled larger copy by the one inch, this will be part of the placed object (leaf), extrude the leaf design beyond this offset part and run interfere, uncheck delete interfere object. Then take the original object (vase) and union with the interference object,

 

Attached is a bug offset a sphere with a similar offset.

What you might want to do is Imprint and then thicken (or offset the face, whatever it is called in solidedit in AutoCAD).

Attach your file here for further instruction.

Many thanks for your reply! This is exactly what I am looking for. I just missed "Having your object (vase) to place on, make scaled larger copy by the one inch, this will be part of the placed object (leaf),"

 

Can you explain it more! Please take a look at the dwg attached. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

 

THANKS

See attached. The vase contour is just an oversize the amount you want the raised potion to be. In this case I used one inch as you suggested.
