Re: Ellipsoid problem under Shape Creation tools

Ok, here is what I found -- I was rotating the ellipse 90 degrees before performing the loft operation, and the result was the crumpled looking solid shown previously. If I perform the loft without rotating the ellipse, it executes perfectly. In my application I can rotate the solid after performing...

Re: Ellipsoid problem under Shape Creation tools

Re: Problem with boolean cut operation

I increased the height of the loft by 1mm, and the cut worked as expected. Thanks for the help.

Re: Problem with boolean cut operation

Do you mean I have somehow inadvertently created a superfluous vertex? I recreated my model from scratch and still have the same error.

Select Sketch001 from the list, then click ok. Now that Sketch001 is mapped to the bottom of the pad, the Pocket fu...
