Please forgive me if my question is a bit cumbersome…I am not sure how to explain it in correct technical terms…
I am creating a men’s signet ring:
using curve network
using a shield shape as the top profile shape, which has a rounded point at top, and then the top “corners” have been “lopped off” to be chamfered with rounded corners as well.
I have three more additional closed curves positioned moving down the ring, which I thought I would use to transition the surface from the corners to a smoother surface as it moves downward.
I also have four side profile curves to help control the shape of the shank (front and side)
my question is: how to I eliminate the influence of the corners from the top profile curve as I move down the surface?
I thought the additional curves would sort of create a transition to the smooth, and although they are vastly improving the smoothness, influence from the top profile is continuing down the ring surface.
I did go ahead and come off the corners a bit more tangentally and less concave, and this did help to reduce the influence…
I hope I am making some sort of sense…
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
