Hello everybody,
I take the opportunity to wish a happy new 2017 to Moi, you and yours, in health, joy and prosperity.

Find a pic and a Moi 3d file, and I would like to my solid, to have a rounded top.

As I do so far, is to extrude my fancy shape, and then to fillet the top. However, it does not work fully.

is there another way to dome the top, other than mentioned above.
How do you do this?
I hope it is clear my intent...

Thank you for your time,
Rudy

Hi Rudy,

With two long curves, they can be extruded and the top 2 edges Blended.

Your curves have several sections, and only two long ones are desired.
I deleted everything except the bottom curves. Place a point to preserve extrude distance, or remember the height.
Trim the two extreme rounded ends in the middle with two points.
Save only the long curvy side, and rebuilt it to get rid of "corner" type points near the 2 ends. I used .001 tolerance.
Then mirror the long curve.
Extrude the two long curves.
Select the two top EDGES and BLEND. Blend can be adjusted.
Planar the bottom, and Join all 4 surfaces to a solid.

- Brian

BlendCap script is another way, with the correct single top edge.

Another different result depending of what you need! :)
Take the 2 top sinuous curves : draw an Arc perpendicular at the middle between them
then Network


If top is too "flat" add some arcs before Network :)
Here just 3 arcs

Hi Brian,
Thank you.

Is there any chance you can do a step by step visual (with a printscreen shot). Still cannot understand well the procedure.
if it is too much, never mind.
Thanks,
Rudy

Apologies, Rudy, but I lack the skill and time.
Michael, Burr, and others are both highly skilled and excellent at such "tutorials."

Hi Rudy, are you getting stuck on a particular one of the steps that Brian wrote about above? If so please mention which one it is and I can give you more details on that one.

Hello Rudy,

Here is a Sweep and Blend result. By the way, your linework is very clean.
