Hi Andras

I have built a version using sweep 2 rails and a scaling rail. First cutting in half and then using the surface edges to make blend lines to guide the sweep.

Not as easy as a blend but see if it will do.

regards

Jamie




I used more points than shown in the screengrab 30 i think.

Hi andras,

You must split the cylinder up into 8 surfaces,and the right solid must be
open on the side you want to blend.

Hi Andras

Another one. This is using a loft set to loose. I used all the profiles to build the loft.

Hi andras, like Paolo mentioned above it is possible to use Blend for that if you split up the closed part into pieces, so that there is a one-to-one matching of edges.

But you don't actually need to split all the surfaces up, you can just split the edge only into small edge pieces by selecting the edge and using the Trim command with the "Add trim points" option to place the dividing spots in.

After you have split the edges you can then pick pairs of edges between the 2 pieces and use Blend.


But it can be better to use a more structured approach (something like sweep or network with some additional guide curves) than Blend when trying to make something between pretty different shapes.


In the future I do want to improve Blend so that it will be able to work on a series of edges directly inside of Blend rather than only between a pair of them.


- Michael

Michael, it can also be done with Loft, as some examples above.
Loft would be much better with a "Guide curve" or Rails.

That's called Sweep in MoI - Sweep lets you pick profile curves like Loft and then also rails to guide the sides (if you pick 2 rails, if you pick 1 rail it is used as a single path curve).

Hi Michael,

Daily practice with Loft and Swep... in a production environment.
Therefore Loft with the "Rail/Guide Curve" option would be very welcome.

Could you describe how Loft with a rail curve would be any different than sweep?

Some programs use that term "Loft with guide rail" to mean the same thing as MoI's sweep tool.

MoI's Sweep tool takes a set of cross-section profiles just like Loft, and then you pick rails. So it's like a "Loft with guide rails".

Hi Michael,

I transferred my recommendation in the wishlist: Loft with "Guide Curves/Rails".

Could you describe a bit about what that actually means though?

As far as I know Sweep in MoI is the equivalent of "Loft with Guide Rails" - so you don't need to wish for it, Sweep is already a function in MoI under the Construct tools...

But if what you are talking about is different than Sweep could you describe or show how it would work? Maybe an example model or something?

I am aware of this and I know the difference very well.
My wish is Loft with "Guide curves/Rails".

Btw.: Here is a real example of our daily work with Moi3D,
that means we do not use Moi for the first time... ;)

Hi Ralf,

But what is "Loft with Guide curves/Rails" supposed to do?

I am not familiar with how that tool is supposed to work, I need for you to describe it to me (maybe post a simple example model?) so I can understand what you mean by that name.

Is this an example of loft with guides?

Wonderful model Ralf,

Is this for something that will be made for real?
