Surface model Filled Surface problem I am creating a surface model and am trying to use the Filled Surface tool to patch some areas between surfaces and to match the surrounding curvature. But it will only allow me select the contact option rather than curvature when creating the filled surface.

I'm very new to surface modelling and have been working on a model which i cannot complete certain areas in. I am trying to keep the surface as smooth as possible and trying to match the curvature. But some areas which i have tried to patch don't work using the Boundary or Filled surface tool. The design is rough so bits can changed but I am lost into how to complete the design's gaps.

We're a team building a solar powered car and are having a lot of trouble figuring out how to make a certain surface in Solidworks. What we currently have looks like this: As you can see, our surface quality is just terrible and our current method of making our car consists of importing in airfoil shapes and using a surface extrude/fills for the main body and lofts for the cockpit and fairing.

This is a very easy challenge, so there will be only 1 (one) 5,000 point prize. To win it, find the simplest, most elegant solution (yeah, I know, it is a subjective criterion) to this problem:

surface model curvature issues i'm creating a surface model, the boundary surface works but on evaluate curvature it appears red, is there anything i can do to fix this?

Please see the attached model. I can use the Intersection Curve command to create a circle of intersection between the Surface-Revolve2 and Surface-Revolve3 features, but it will not work between either of them and the Surface-Revolve4 feature. What did I do wrong?

Hello, My second question on the forums and i hope to use the advantage of your experience, i'm working on the CAMARO tutorial ( the one from 2010 ) to use it for a CFD analysis of drag and pressure loads at high speeds,

I'm working on a fairly detailed surface model at the moment, and I'm currently doing a shell of the inside by hand. I've done a bunch of 'Extend Surface' functions with no issue, but this one is playing up for some reason. The preview (below) looks good...

I'm modeling a bone and am trying to make one of the "wings" at the top of the bone lower than the rest of the bone. I'm attempting this by using a surface cut to chop off the top half, but keep getting the "operation failed due to geometric condition" error. I saw elsewhere that this typically happens when your cut would leave a very small section of essentially zero thickness, but I can't seem to find a spot that would be causing the issue. I'm trying to make an upward cut with Surface-Loft10.

can you put 3D Sketch command on the "S" key shortcut bar? Currently you can access this command through drop downs in the bar but it requires 3 mouse clicks. how do you do that?

I have a specific question and was wondering if anyone else has encountered and learned arepeatable solvefor this issue: I would say 90% of my SW model building revolves around setting up and creating smooth surfacing (and then battling the heartburn). Sometimes when I create a Boundary Surface (with either Tangent or Curvature edge conditions ON) I get these odd ripples,always near the seam of the surfaces.

I got a question in the exam that required a surface gap to be filled and a fillet put in its place but as I don't use surfacing that much I didn;t have a glue what the best method to do it was so I left it. please could someone throw some light on this so I know for future. thanks I have attached the model file and its the large are to be repaired and they state a fillet of 9.525mm

Productivity is there a way to speed up the boundary surface operations by moving from Direction 1 (the top box) to Direction 2 (the bottom box) by pressing the Tab key once? Currently pressing the Tab key selects functions but it moves step by step requiring a lot of clicks. To me it looks like it has to be another macro if that is even possible.

In the video (SWX 2012) curvature option is used to fill Surface. But in my case it is giving an error message. My one is SWX 2018. What is the reason?

I frequently receive surface models for head lamp light sources. These consist of ~300 individual surfaces that need to be stitched into a solid. Is there a setting somewhere to default to always "try to from solid" when using the knit command? We are still running 2015 unfortunately.

In the video there are 5 options in the Boundary Surface drop down menu. In my SWX 2018 there are only 3 options. What is the reason for that? I wish to know whether nature of the profile is a precondition for number of options displayed.

What direction will NONE take? I assumed that it will take shorted possible distance between profiles.
