Joined Surface to solid failure

If any one can help fix this it would be great

I can separate all the surfaces and join them back up again, starting with inside surfaces and working my way round. Once its completed it says it's solid, but look down the middle and i have a strange surface generated from nowhere, so i delete that surface and replace it with a blend, now it wont join again, explode to surfaces and repeat, i am going nuts trying to fix this.

The surface that has issues is magenta.

Hi Martin, I think that somewhere along the line the edges on the green part got divided up with one little teeny tiny squeezed one remaining. When I get rid of the magenta piece temporarily and just select all naked edges that should be bordering it from the green areas, it reads as 5 edges being selected. When I click them manually I only see 4. So there's some extra edge in there gumming things up. It may be possible to eliminate it using the merge command.

Thanks Michael, if it's on the forward edge i have merged that several times and had anything from 5 to 20 naked edges produced.

Lemme go look at it again :/

Hi Martin, I'm not really sure exactly what's going on there, but I was able to get the attached solid version after rebuilding both the magenta piece and the smaller tube on one side of it all in one loft with the "straight sections" loft option.

Something seems to be getting confused for whether one of the previous edges was a closed curve or not, something like that.

Anyway I hope the attached solid version gets the immediate problem solved.

Thanks Michael, I didn't use the straight sections option, so my guess is that it is that little extra help needed.

Many thanks Michael

Hi Martin, I was able to track down why there was a problem with joining that surface - it was due to Loft not using a tight enough fitting tolerance in some cases.

I've fixed it up so that in the next beta your original case here will work ok.

Thanks Michael, It was the first time of running into the issue so i guess it would be a rare occurrence. Good job on tracking the little blighter down.
