You might stand a better chance of getting some help if you'll post a model. I couldn't really tell much from looking at the pdf.

here is a zip file of what i have so far i'm tring to do half the grill then i'll mirror it.


as you can see i'm having trouble where the parabolic surface meets the surface i created..the design call for the parabolic feature to be visable..but not a hard edge...any ideas?

build you curves and since you have style (isdx), create your surfces in that, I would probably do the chamfers after the model was built..


have you got the solid works model?

havent got Sw 2005, only 2004 :(


you can see if you have isdx (otherwise known as style) by simply clicking on help/technical support info,


a window then appears, scrool down to "Configured Option Modules"and this shows you what modules you have installed..


if you have ISDX you should see Interactive_Surface_Design

Hi minicorrado


why u making so hassles??? just go to boundry surface and make like this


Actually in wild fire 2 its extremely easy to create boundry surface even extreme complex but this could be created easily in 2001. Why you make it half and again mirror it???

is there a way to flatten out the surface where the 2 curves that define the suface meet?


there is a raised peak origionating from the intersection of the two curves, i'd like to smooth it out


thx


Matt


p.s.


thanks Zaki, i tried your method aswell it is close to what im looking for, but daves method is closer,thanks again
