Lofting between solids

Postby zinob » Tue Feb 19, 2019 2:16 pm

This is a simplified example. I have (multiple) solids and i want to generate "wedges" in between them. Here i have downgraded the solid and then lofted between the surfaces, but on the real model this is impractical. Both because i have so many places that i want to shim and because i want to be able to keep working with the other faces of the solid, as a sold afterwards. Is there any other way? I guess that i could also create sketches on the faces and import the underlying geometry, but that would also get very messy very fast.

Of if someone has any suggestion on how to extract multiple faces along a curved surface without these wedges appearing that would also be really helpful..

You can use a Facebinder object from Draft WB to get the face links you need for a Loft
