Need Help How to make a bubble heart

   Hey Guys I have been banging my head for hours on this one. I can't seem to make a VERY Simple heart and then loft it or do the replace face thing or multiple other things I have tried.

   Why Is there no simple make a model face into a t-spline face. (I really want to rant but Im new to Fusion)

I have tried the create plane, and replace face thing but alas it does not give the desired results. I need the outline of the heart to be the constraining line not the "plane" square.

   Any ideas would be greatly appreciated3D-fibreglass-heart-sculpture.jpg

This design has come up here several times over the past 4 yrs.

A search should turn up prior threads on the topic.

Can you File>Export and then Attach the *.f3d file of your attempt?


Edit: Hmm, well of course now I do a quick search and can't find the prior references.

Someone will come along and remember this and know the reference.

I have been in and out of sculpt mode. I believe my issue is I cant select the heart outline to use as a constraint so the sculpt doesnt do weird things to the edges.

here is one way to get a shape sort of like that, using surface Loft.

just went back and looked at the image.  Didn't realize that this was not planar on the back, so I added another mirror, and tweaked the sketches a bit to get this:

and attached the model.

Geeze... sorry for the long reply, I thought I hit post the first time.


Thanks very much for the reply and video. I have several SVG files, not to complicated, heart, balloon etc. I was hoping to not have to Build each item separately. I will keep playing.


On a second note, That was perfect for another one I was doing.


Thanks again,
