This is my third time ask questions here, well, I did tried, I tried a few projects, doing work like trim a curved surfaces. It feels good when start, but with the repair area more and more, draw more lines connect to another drawn lines
Finally, the curved part looks terrible. not smooth at all
So I want to hear some advices,
When you modifying or fixing a surface, such as grinding a part of it or insert other thing in the middle
What I always do is put in another shape as cut tool or I just want insert another shape, then click intersect faces
Boom! it becomes messy, fix these broken faces or unexpected curve take me a lot time to do it, and besides the result isn’t good
- Is this a common practice? Is there another different way to do it?
I was wondering build a exactly same curved surface, so doing fixing work by use that, but it seems a bit difficult, especially some curved surfaces are tortuous.
Here is a example I am looking for way to fix it:
The top of the box that crossed the line is what I added, there used to have a groove there, so I want fill that up. Very obvious there is only one line inside the box below, and doesn’t even have line in box of left side
This is what looks like after I try to fix it with soften and smooth function from entity Info, This is not flat, isn’t it?
I tried this shape, which is little better, but still uneven, can never looks smooth as below box, and i cannot remove any line anymore
if I spend a lot to fix every faces that before and after, what i do is remove every curved lines, curved faces, reconnect them. this is not work for complex circle, and may cause continuous problems
Is there a tool or trick help to doing this kind work?
When i import an STL model into SketchUp, produced a lot of holes on the surface of the model, most of them aren’t bad holes (for describe hole which cannot make a surface unless add extra angle), they are good holes (for describe hole which already have correct edge and angle, just need a snap with “Line” tool, don’t need add any extra lines), is there a quick way to do it? its over thousands
Love you guys, and grateful for any answering, its very precious for me who work alone, i am not always taking help, i have little bit open source projects, and I like help others too if my knowledge is enough
I am working on SketchUp Pro 2017, Macos
