    Default Having Trouble Creating an Edge

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Afternoon,

    This is my first time on CADTutor and hoping to receive some much needed assistance.

    For a while now I have been attempting to resolve a a part of my CAD drawing. As seen below I have a 3D Solid. The part circled is result of subtracting a cylinder from the shape. I am now trying to find a solution to make both the above and below edges of the dotted line meet as one while maintaining the curve I have subtracted. Unfortunately, I cannot come up with an answer. I attempted to chamfer the edge but found this at difficulty. Am I going about this wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

    I hope that I have explained this well.


    Thanks

    Hard to tell what you have in an image, would be better to post the model.

    Is this a student project?

    Sweep two lines as surfaces and the slice.

    I have attached the DWG for better reference. This is a piece for a friend to clarify what I am making it for.

    I will refer to my textbook for what you speak of. If you have/know of any references (YouTube videos, etc) please link them. Thank you for your help!

    You will need to Loft rather then Sweep.
    I would do 1/4 and then mirror twice (you have already done way too much work - use mirrors and arrays for symmetrical geometry).

    Thank you! I will try this tonight. I hope I didn't create too much unnecessary work. I only created the largest piece. Everything else was copied or scaled.
