intersecting a convex and concave curve

Postby Walter S. Arnold » Mon Nov 26, 2007 12:23 pm

I'm trying to model a shape where the front bows forward and the bottom bows up, so the concave and convex surfaces intersect.



Is there any easy way to do this? Or do I have to do one face, then build the other by showing the hidden lines and connecting all the lines manually?

(hope the attachment shows, I'm logged on through a proxy and it's blocking the inline image display).

Yup, that's it. I knew there was a better method that what I've been doing. I've made the two forms, aligned them, and then drawn all the intersecting lines individually before I start erasing.

The intersect with model bit will save all the annoying parts of the work. Thanks,
