Hi Brian,

> I can not get the original to Shell?

Looks like there are some micro-sized folds in your surface:







That kind of situation where a surface folds back over on top of itself in a small area really throws a monkey wrench into shelling or offsetting, because the surface normal very suddenly shifts to the opposite side in those spots.

It looks like your original curves have that kind of folded over spot in them.


> but I can neither get an effective loft between the two or an edge sweep?

That folded over area is probably also giving a problem for sweeping - for lofting are you possibly trying to Loft the 2 large curves together all in one operation?

One of those curves is made up of 3 segments, and the other is made up of 8 segments - MoI doesn't really know how to best match up differing numbers of segments like this and will just average the entire shapes together, which probably does not result in what you want.

To get better results with lofting that case, you'll need to break things into their segments by using Edit/Separate, then loft it in smaller pieces (like in this case in 4 different Lofts) so that you can force the segment matching to be what you want.

Hope this helps!

- Michael

Michael---you can probably see the dark mushroom cloud over my place from where you are!

LOVE the rotate gizmos etc in the other thread!

I got some cool results by sweeping a helix then squishing it down.

Its somewhat different shape than what you show, but if you were allowed the creative, then its fast and looks great. Maybe for future creations. Works less for the W V A thing but more for a similar effect quikly!

Burr, that one really has the most natural kind of look to it!

Yeah slightly different than the official target design since the sections are not straight, but it also seems like that same thing gives it a much more natural wrapping look to it as well...

Whoa!

I did not know that blend works on curves, I surely learned something today!
That's the problem, Moi makes me feel like I don't "need" to read the manual!

Perhaps this will help it's just a sweep of a rectangle along two lines blended with tangential option

Rafaello, nice approach. I did try your model but notice that only works with those angles I tried to rotate the non vertical leg and make it parallel to the other leg but it won't sweep. Any idea way?

Hi, you have to break the rail curve and erase the curve between th lines, then move the lines to the new position and blend them like I show you in the image, finally join the lines with the curve and make the sweep.

Hi, Dan I saw the file you sent and that's exactly what I was lookink for. I try to replicate what you did but I am stuck at the lost+sweep step. Could you be so king to eleborate a little more? I am really new to MOI and step by step command will help me a lot.
thanks
Wil

Hi Wil,
here you are. Sorry for the bad quality, but I had to keep it light!
Hope it helps
Cheers

Hello:

I´m too late, but.... :-)

1.- Draw a polyline and fillet it.





2.- Extrude the polyline setting the direction of extrusion










3.- And...nothing else. You can mirror the result and copy to get the final result. (and shell it, of course)







Bye

David

That's exactly the step I've tried to explain in the video. First you loft the two pairs of parallel lines, then you sweep the two curved blends.

Hi wagurto,

I took the example from Daniele(compliments) and joined the curves
in two single curves

Then snapped a horizontal Line between them,and
Sweep two rails to create a single surface

Finally Shell(Flip direction option)
