I'm having problems trimming this surface. It says the trim tool does not intersecting. I tried it with 3-D sketch created by using the "Face Curve" command. So I know the sketch resides on the surface.

I'm trying to create a surface that will cover the gap shown in my picture. Essentially, I would like to create a loft starting at 0 degrees as a semicircle and finishing at 90 degrees as a custom profile. Lofting doesn't accomplish this, however. I've been able to get some good-looking previews with a boundary boss/base, but every time I try to apply it it says there's self-intersecting geometry.

How to convert to the solid model , in PTC creo parametric it's easy . In Solidworks this is easy also. Use the Thicken feature.

Problem with surfacing I'm trying to do something similar like the attached PH file (this came from a .stl file, not editable) for a university project. I don't have much expertise in SolidWork and don't know if I'm in the right way, but started with 2 surfaces to then use the knit surface with the option of create a solid and merge the entities, but solidworks gave me an error saying the a solid can't be created.

It is explained that Merge entities means merge faces with the same underlying geometry. Face has been createdwith the base of the underlying geometry. What is the purpose of merging it?

I am trying to model a square 350mm x 350mm to round Ø300 at 200mm distance. First of all let me say SW is really giving me a hard time. I came from NX background 4 years ago, and started with Inventor.

I know that it's possible to create a solid from a surface, but was wondering if you can, & if so, what would be the best way to go about creating a surfaced feature, & then blending or converting that to a solid

does anyone know why sometimes there is an option for creating an exploded view in a part and sometimes there is not? I don't understand where the inconsistencies come from but I find the option of making an exploded view in a part very helpful. Otherwise I have to move bodies. Thank you.

I have a problem with making a smooth surface model. It becomes a bit bumpy and I don't know what I should do different to get a better result. The left picture is what I got and the right one is what I want.

These connectors are sometimes not showing, specially when I work with boundary surface. What is the reason? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.9.0, revision: 20171215204634.b96715f.release_2016.3.9

I have a part that's composed entirely of surfaces which enclose a formerly solid part. I'd like to take these surfaces and fill them into solid bodies. The tool that I thought would do this is "Filled Surface" which seems to be a misnomer because, the way I understand it, all this tool does is create a surface patch. Maybe they should call it "Patch Surface" instead, but I digress.

Suggested Extrude Surface Tool Improvement One of my ongoing frustrations with the extrude surface tool is that you have to extrude an entire sketch. Why can't the Extrude Surface Tool use the Selection Manager (like Boundary).

Trying to thicken a ship hull, but I get the error Failed to offset or face could not be deleted? It's hard to know things like this won't work unless you have a lot of experience with failure. One thing is that you've got areas of the edge between the side and the bottom that transition from tangent to not tangent.

I'm working on creating a NACA duct to put on the body of an aerodynamic shell for a vehicle. The duct is going to be placed at the leading edge of the car, where the car has some slight curvature. I plan on manufacturing the part out of fiberglass without taking the flex into account. I'm assuming that the part will be flexible enough so that when I bolt it down it will flex onto the contour of the curve.
