Hi

 

Im struggling to create the drawing which I require.

 

I've attached a couple of pics which show roughly what is required.

 

The problem Im having is when carrying out a 3d sketch, I would like the arc or even a spline to have a controllable radius in two directions.

 

Please take a look at my pics to help understanding easier.

 

I need to do this so that the curve sketched is equivalent of being drawn on a curved surface, I need good technique as I have numerous curves to draw, increasing in size the further away from the centre they get as I creating an impeller bladeCapturejkjkjkjkjk.JPGCapturenbbnnbnbn.JPG

Can you create two surfaces and get their intersection? (The first surface is a horizontal cylinder, and the second is an extrusion of a circular arc)

Something like this?  Extruding as surfaces isn't even necesssary.  Just create the two 2D sketches, then create a 3D sketch and intersect the first two sketches.

Would this 3D sketch then be patterned around the circle on sketch 1? Ryan mentioned the need for several arcs so I assume they would be arrayed around the circle.

thanks for all your help guys, managed to get the desired effect, I drew two two 2d images and then used the 3d image to intersect the line. very clever great advice thanks
