Follow me into different radius

Postby Leggy » Sat Dec 21, 2019 2:41 am

Hi I’m trying to make a cover on a 90 angle , but the 2 sides have different radius, how can i blend the 2 together , thinking of follow me some how
Maybe do the longer radius around the 90 angle and then scale down?

The longer side radius needs to be twice the size of the shorter one

Since you seem to be having problems adding an Image, is it this sort of thing you are after?

Yes but a radius in the corner where they meet, so it blends through
Thanks for your time

It can be done manually but it's much easier with Curviloft and Joint Push Pull.
One little note here, By using the center inference and magenta the small radius will be half the large one.

It's only genius if it is clear enough for you to follow, otherwise it is just speed modelling which isn't very helpful. ;)

There are various other ways to do something similar depending on the actual result you need. If needed you can still add an image as there may be a better option.

For Curviloft to operate correctly, you need to select only the external contours, not the inner corner edges. Watch the short video by Box again.

For a bit of clarity, in my gif you see me select all of it and show that it doesn't work as it highlights too many edges, then I hold down shift to deselect the corner faces. You could also activate the tool with nothing selected and just click on the edges you need.

Why don't you upload the SKP file so we can see what you started with?

No. The bottom arc has 24 segments so I divided the straight lines on the sides and top so there is a total of 24 segments up each side (including the segments in the arcs at the top.

Do what? Divide the edges? I right clicked on an edge, selected Divide and then entered the correct number.

Clever , the problem with the video is the curser leaves the screen so you can’t see what he clicked

The only things I saw where the cursor wasn't visible was when he made a group after context clicking on the selected geometry and then when he moved the cursor to bring the Entity Info panel up to show that it's a solid group.
