I have been spending the day trying to figure out better ways of doing things I have done in the past. While I’m on a roll, I thought I’d ask about this one that has some common element i’ve asked about over the past couple of day.
Here I have the parts of an assembly with three layers. Each layer shares a common edge (with the top layer being discontinuous). The issue here is that the edge is not shared continuously. The bottom and top layers pull back from the edge of the middle layer and do so a at different locations. I have the middle layer as an extrusion of a curve.
This seems to cause all kinds of problems. Getting the pieces together is a nightmare. I have to do a lot of exploding, joining, capping, and removing surfaces with non-manifold edges to get things together.
I suspect the problem is this partially shared edge.
Is there some good approach to take for situations like this?Problem Edge.3dm (458.5 KB)
