Ok, I put a workaround into the scricpt. I let a small gap in the loft. Than make a second loft that fills the gap with some overlapping and fuse both parts.
This gives a valid solid at the cost of a longer runtime. An example part made with the script.
The script has a variable size. So the parts that are listed at http://www.springmasters.com/sp/wave-sp ... ers-4.html
can be made with the script.
I have a question now. Such a part is defined with its original thickness Lo as defined in the standard. When such part is used in an assembly, it will be typically deflected and has different dimensions. Is there a need for part-models with a certain degree of deflection? I was thinking about to add the script to the Screw_maker makro. So would there be a need for an additional deflection parameter?
