Sometimes SURFPATCH will not patch - Modeling Operation Error

235 Views, 2 Replies

64 bit SP 1.1 applied

 

Some of the 3D poly-lines refuse to be 'patched' using SURFPATCH (attached DWG)

Command resultis in this message:

 

Modeling Operation Error:
Operation unsuccessful.

Cannot create patch surface from the selected curves.

 

In the attached DWG, the thinner middle 3D poly does not become a surface using SURFPATCH, can anyone explain why, what is invalid in the 3D poly?

 

TIA,

Kevin.

Is there any reason you can't do as 4 curves (actually only need 2) and Loft instead?
