GordonCurve aren't entire. Maybe periodic InterpolationCurve carry out that?
...
Edit: Told3D=0,5 give a closed surface ;)

... But We are not able to see them until make an offset3D.

For this case it's useful to turn lighting to "One side"

Hi UR_,
Thank you very much. This is a very good way to see the direction of surfaces. Unfortunately you have to adjust the lighting for each new surface or connect. Is there a parameter to set Lighting to "One Side" in general?
Best regards

The gordon surface tool doesn't work on closed curves yet, unfortunately.
And increasing the tolerance does not solve this. If you look closely at your model, you'll see that it is not closed, there is a gap along one curve.

Hi GlouGlou,
thank you very much, that is nice.
Please upload your Freecad-File, just the sketches please, because I would like try to create the faces with the surface workbench.
Best regards

+1

for the last few seconds of the video where you show the surface continuity, you could have turned on the zebra tool :)
