Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm looking for help turning this 3d polyline into a solid.  Any suggestions?  Attached is the drawing.  Thank you!

I think you forgot the attachment. Can you provide the drawing file?

I'm not sure if it will be possible, because of the organic shape. Maybe if you can convert it to a surface and then run the Thicken command to give the surface some thickness?

 

I have moved your thread to the 3D modeling section, here: https://www.cadtutor.net/forum/forum/14-autocad-3d-modelling-amp-rendering/

Hi Paul!

 

Try the following:

  • Important: The two polyline have to be independent two polylines (The four (line and spline) can be in contact with each other, but should not be connected (_join not allowed) into one object)
  • So you have four items (two lines at the ends, and two spiraling polylines)
  • Use command:
    • _loft
    • select the two spiraling polylines
    • hit enter 2 times
  • Use command:
    • _thicken (with this you give thickness to a surface and it will be converted to a 3D solid)
    • enter the value and with prefix "-" you can define the direction

I hope I helped!

 

PS: Sorry for my English. I try to get the best out of myself 😄

 

Best Regards,

Hachi
