Making a solid from a Curviloft form

Postby GonRod » Wed Aug 21, 2019 9:58 pm

Hello From México

You know if there are some restrictions to make solid pieces if you use Curviloft?

I need to Slice my model to cut it on the CNC cutter, but to do that I need a Solid piece, that I made with Curviloft, I checked with Solid Inspector2 and it points me in the lines that has been made with Curviloft. Can you help me please

Thank you

When you use Curviloft to make a surface it automatically makes it a group.
So your "solid" isn't because it is made up of several faces and edges of raw geometry and two groups created by Curviloft within the other group. By exploding those two groups you get all raw geometry within one group which is a Solid. You should also reverse the blue faces so you only see white from the outside. Blue faces are back faces.
