surface sweep with tangency?


New member
I am trying to create a surface similar to the red surface shown in the image in order to join the two surfaces in cyan and green. The red surface was created using a variable section sweep and is nearly right but the feature does not maintain tangency throughout the sweep.

What is feature to do this?

Thank you,

You might try using a boundry blend. Create tangent curves at ends and then do a 4 sided boundry blend using the edge of the surfaces and the sketched curves. Specify the boundries to be tangent.

You will not get a g2 surface with a var sec sweep.

Build a network of curves and use a boundary blend.
