Request:

1. Using ZW3D, keep operation history in the final result

2. The connect surface should achieve G2 ccontinuity at least.


3. Please attached your final z3. file

4. Please paste one image in the your post at least

5. It would be better if you can share your design thinking together


Welcome to do this test subject and challenge each others ! The best one can get more Forum Rank.

Hi Bottlecad, the special method you use to create it, The quality looks good, but if you change to wireframe mode, you will found that, the original surface has been pull away and make a gaps there. Because you use the "Match tangency" command.

Hi William, I had forgotten about this but BottleCAD reminded me... so I thought a response was appropriate.
I like to stretch my imagination a little so the model reflects this warped sense...

Hi Paul, Good job !!I think you know ZW3D very well, and you can use the loft command expertly.

Now the surfacing model has achieved G1, for free design product, there is no any problem.

But if we need a smooth surfacing and through the specify profiles, we can think about another ways. Loft is too free and hard to control the inner shape.

You should note that prior to the pull tangency command the edges were fine. I only did it to reduce the continuity error. The software I use on a daily basis would only alter the connecting edge.

Hi Bottlecad, now the surface quality has achieved to G1, and using "Fillet open face" is really good command to create the connecte surface bettween two major surfaces. Would you like to try create the G2 continuity ?:lol

ConnectBottleCad3.zip (301.6 KB) While the edge fillet does improve the connection, it does present a question. If the original surfaces are the same why should I "expect" the results to be different in the same software package??
