I know the title is confusing , let me explain in depth.
I am a student and I am doing my GCSE product design coursework, from the start I had to design a product and laser it out and put it together.
After I have finished this I need to make a 1:1 scale model on sketchup , including every single detail (kerfing and castellations). With my kerfing design it would take lots of time to copy each individual kerf onto the face of my design.
I have exported the kerf design as a DXF from 2D design and imported it into sketchup.
Here is my kerfing design:
I need to get that onto the front of my model.
Here is my model:
I also need to curve every side and corner of my model. I know how to do this but since my model already has curves on it, I dont know how to curve a curve if that makes sense.
I need to do something like this on every side:
However this happens:
Here is a picture from further away, same angle:
The problem summarised is that I dont know how to:
- Get my kerfing pattern onto the front face of my model
- Curve my edges.
