How to make "hollow octahedron"? - problem witch creating a surface

Hello,
I am trying to make a surface here:
sketchup_surfaceproblem1
it’s like a part of a “hollow octahedron”. I drew arcs but I really don’t know how to make a surface now.
Thanks for response!

You basically need to stitch it, draw edges between the segment endpoints of the curves to create lots of little faces, then smooth the edges.
I’m not near my pc just now so can’t show what I mean, will make a gif a bit later.

Very quick response! Do you mean something like this?


Everytime I do something repetitive like this I feel kinda uncomfortable :smiley: I am sorry if I am doing something stupid, it’s like 3 am here, so I am going to sleep and continue morning. I look forward to your gif :slight_smile:

That is exactly what I meant, use the Eraser tool while holding ctrl to smooth the edges and you’ll have a single surface.
In the desktop version you would normally use an extension to fill this in for you, but the web version currently doesn’t use extensions.
So you have done it the manual way, the way it has been done since before extension where even thought of.
