Try untrimming the lower surface, use BlendSrf on corresponding edges of both surfaces, then trim the lower surface and the newly created blend surface.
I tried every untrim command but it doesnt seem to work.
extract this surface ( RMB on the explode icon)
then lock everything else with _IsolateLock
Later use _ReplaceEdge and select all the top edges to be replaced with a line:
Now you can make a Loft between inner and exterior edges:
then you can use Polar Array to distribute the spheres again and make the boolean difference:
Тhanks a lot and thank you for your time!
When I tried this ReplaceEdge gave me an edge not a line even though the ReplaceWithLine Mode was selected. Is there another setting I’m missing?
the " replace with line"means the continuity of the edge, if you want a curve you need to use DupEdge or DupBorder
Well then perhaps the Mode name should be Replace with Edge!
I also couldn’t complete a loft because I got a message saying I had both open and closed objects or something to that effect.
Thanks for your help.
welll … the command name is ReplaceEDGE you can replace with a line or extend adjacent edges too. check if you miss some tiny edges in the selection , if you are working with the same file it should work as I described above. if not, make a new topic and post the file there so we can help you.
It was the same file but my attempt at a loft was unsuccessful. Let me try it again and if it fails I’ll post the details of the failure.
