3D fill the void between two surfaces

Hi
How can I fill the void between each two surface so the gap in between becomes solid?

I tried to cap the geometry but it didn’t work.

I managed to do it by lofting each set of curves but I prefer to do it in a shorter approach.

easier than you think

Was the original surface created in Grasshopper?
Are all pairs of surfaces the same?

It looks like each pair of surfaces is a mirror of a thickened surface. Would it not be better to just take the 2 outermost surfaces and instead of thickening them, loft the edges to cap them and create a solid?

I can’t open the file as I’m still on R5

You can create it from the beginning

Thank you Will ! But does this fill the void in between ? Because later I have to 3D print it and if it’s not a solid, it would not work.

Thank you for the suggestion! Yes actually this makes a lot of sense. I’m just experimenting and my previous design didn’t have solid parts. So now I want to try having solid parts in between. I will try the approach you suggested. Thanks !!

Thank you for the suggestion! I will try this as well.

I’m not sure what the thickness of these wrinkled sheets is for if you are only getting a solid but you can loft and then join the surfaces.

You can try to extract the internal surfaces and create the solid from the medium

Thank you!! This is what I was looking for.
