Did someone of you ever model an oloid? I spent a lot of time but can't find
a solution.

I never realized the Oloid existence before. But perhaps I'm pretty close

The way I read it the radius of each is equal but the distance between centers is r(2^(1/2)). I did a twisted band a couple of months ago that might lend a solution but of course can't find it now with search.

It's not a real difference in modeling, Jeffery, in my eyes. And I'm more
than sure, that you'll agree with me.
But look here:
http://www.wundersamessammelsurium.de/Mathematisches/Torkler/index.html

There are some lines about the oloid. And they are telling, that the
distance between the circle's center points equals their radii.
But, as mentioned before: Not a big change for a parametric system.

Webside NG search...

I guess that goes to show that the webside needs a little bit of a makeover.

I like mine better than Walters. Unfortunately it wasn't made with IV. I
added the holes to see if the solid would be editable since it shows to have
errors.
I'd do a quality check, but you can see from the jpeg that something is
trashed in this install.

That's exactly one of my experiments. But an oloid has a sharp edge only
along the arc. Along the tangential line it must be a smoothed surface. I
also added a third sketch (mirrored to the first sketch) and tried a lofting
trough three sketches. But now I don't get a sharp edge along the arc.

This model seems to be close to the goal. Unfortunately I can't see how to
model this with IV.
