I am trying to recreate the pod section of the ring in the image. I have drawn the pods out as a flat curve and bent them around the inner circle of the ring. I intended to extrude the curve out solid and booleon the indentations in for the stone settings. However, every attempt to do so is met with the same error, this uncapped shape.
I have tried offsetting the curve from a surface, sweep 2 rails and loft. All are met with the same result.
When I attempt to cap the shape, it says “unable to cap one object, object did not have closed, planar loops of edges.”
When i try to join the curves, it says ‘cannot join closed curves’ … and zooming in shows nothing wrong. so why is it saying it is both closed and unclosed at the same time… this isn’t Schrodingers curve.
Can anybody help me? or suggest a better way of achieving that shape?
