Re: Lofted surface transition

Thank you very much M. Mather

 

I agree with you about the simplicity of the sketchs. This part was originally modeled with Catia and I have tried to use the same dimensioning that I found on the original drawing.

 

Your solution #1 is more acceptable to me because I need a shell thickness of .05 inch. In your rev. 1, I am unable to create a shell as low as .001 inch.

 

I think it would be simpler if I had better control of the lofted surface in my original IPT file.

I'm sure if you used rails you could get better results and should be able to shell to any thickness down to where the fillets (which I would do as fillet features, rather than sketch fillets) near zero radius.

 

Give it another try and if you don't get better results I will see if I can find time to improve the part.

Please mark this response as "Accept as Solution" if it answers your question.
