    2 Path Sweep

    vbaran - yes, that's it, however, it doesn't align with the paths. No matter what I do with the object axis or the interactive controls, I can't get the alignment I need. Chris - vbaran'd example above shows that it is possible for the 2 path sweep to provide the two radii. Now if only I could get the result to align with the paths.

    2 Path Sweep

    Chris - thanks for the input. Your method is similar only with the use of Nurbs. I swear at one time I was able to get this shape using 2 path sweep.

    2 Path Sweep

    Des - I didn't think of rounding a 90° corner after the sweep. That should work. Thanks for the suggestion.

    2 Path Sweep

    Thanks for the replies. I wasn't getting email notifications. Yes, sure the axial sweep works but that doesn't change the radius from rear to front of the profile shape. Not sure why many are saying the shape is impossible as this model is to represent a granite counter edge. I haven't been able to use the 2 path sweep effectively since V6.

    2 Path Sweep

    How do I get the 2 path sweep to work? The source shape never aligns with the paths even trying various positions for the object axis. When done interactively, I can't get it to align precisely either. Please advise - file is attached. 2PathSweep.rar

    Old Library Files

    Andrew - Thanks for the reply. I was finally able to figure it out late last night. I opened a newer file and reset all prefs and project settings.

    Old Library Files

    I am unable to open FormZ or any associated files as I am continuously prompted to open library files (.zlb) that do not exist. I loaded some old prefs to retrieve some export settings and I suspect this is what started the problem. How do I go about getting this resolved so that I can actually use the program?

    Guided Loft

    Thanks guys. Works perfectly!

    Guided Loft

    Can someone please tell me why I am unable to get the attached working? FormZ refuses to perform the loft due to the profile shapes not touching the guide lines. I believe they are. guided_loft.zip

    Hidden Line Options

    Worked great. Thanks.

    Hidden Line Options

    I am finding it impossible to get hidden line to show all the edges that I need for an elevation - see first pic. The second attachment shows a shaded view of the missing panel. At one time we could specify the cut-off angle for drawing these edges. Does a setting like this still exist and I have overlooked it? If not, what does support suggest?

    Simple Two Source Sweep

    I appreciate the feedback. Of course, I use object snaps. This form was created using a sweep, so if there was misalignment it was due to that operation and the perpendicular loft.

    Simple Two Source Sweep

    The gap I found was in the large piece - not the trim pieces. The large piece aside - when I try unioning the two profiles by themselves, the boolean does not take. Are you finding a gap between the trim pieces also? I have attached a stripped down version of the file - just the two objects. I see no gaps between these two pieces and the operation will not execute. If you do see a gap, please point it out. Thanks. two trim pieces.zip

    Simple Two Source Sweep

    No, the gaps were not intentional. Thanks for pointing these out. Your suggestion regarding the surfaces, is this deriving surfaces from the existing geometry or starting over from scratch? If starting over from scratch, how would it be possible to get the transition from the dented trim to the smooth? Are you suggesting another perp loft?

    Simple Two Source Sweep

    I was able to get the shape I wanted using the perp loft, however, now that the geometry has differing topology, I am unable to boolean union the entire piece together. Can anyone direct me on how I get the attached to be a solid - all in one piece? I suspect were the 2-source sweep working properly, this would give me exactly what I need as the topology would match up. As it is not working correctly, I will need to find another way... perp loft.zip
