Hey all,
I've been trying to get better with loft feature and trying to model different designs of swords or blades seemed to me like a good way to practice it since most of them can be thought as several profiles lofted into each other. Anyway the one i modelled one last night, it seemed a bit thick for my taste so i wanted to lower the thickness and since my main purpose here is to practice, i started from scratch. For the last hour or so, im trying to loft the tip of the blade but constantly getting cannot knit sheets together error. I couldnt figure out why it doesnt work so here i am. Part is attached.
Regards

Re: Loft base - cannot knit sheets together

Hey Gencosman,

 

I was able to get this loft working and merged when using a point sketch at the end of the model as one of the two loft profiles. Then add the lines from the 3D sketche as guide curves. Check it out...

Re: Loft base - cannot knit sheets together

Hey Benjamin,

Great job!, ive never tried ending the loft on a point cos i actually thought that would result in an impossible geometry like zero thickness, apparently i was wrong. Thanks for taking the time to help me.

Re: Loft base - cannot knit sheets together

..or, another way,.. have the edge flow (boundary surface) to the tip, trim/mirror and fill/mirror the open tri opening and knit.

Re: Loft base - cannot knit sheets together

Hey Paul,

Incidentally when i googled "cannot knit sheets together" error before posting here, most of the asnwer i found did involve surfacing to go around the problem but i dont have any kind of experience with the surfacing features so im not sure if i can manage it right now. I'll definitely look into it though. Thanks for your answer.
