i’m trying to fix a hole in an old model from my workshop database where the cutting curve is missing.
my normal approach to create the surface(with the full solid available) would be: wirecut / extrude curve+trim / make a solid and boolean dif.
All surface creation ways i tried failed to create the ‘simple’ surface it should/could be(red one in the attached file)
So my last try was to: dupedge, split at quads, setpt / project to cplane, extend curve on both sides, extrude that curve.
In my logic the resulting surface should be able to be trimmed/split… just it won’t.
With the original curve it’s no problem at all.
So is there a way to recreate the curve and/or create the surface or is this a “once you forgot your keys in the car you can’t simply go back in” situation?
Thanks in advance!
