I am working with a model into sections of which I want to make a series of holes that don’t go all the way through but are .5 mm deep.
In the flat sections of the model I was successful in doing this, but I am having difficulties doing the same on the curves area of the model.
This is what I did to create the holes in the flat areas. I started with a polyline connecting the corners of each flat area. Then I did an offset, followed by fillet corners. After that Make Hole, with option Direction > Normal To Curve so the holes go straight in. After that I filleted the edges of the holes.
On the curved surface this method does not work. I again created a curve connecting the four corners of the surface (red), then the offset curve with the filleted corners (yellow), and then I did Pull Curve to project the curve onto the curved surface (white). But now I don’t know how to create the hole I want. Obviously my approach is wrong.
Am I on the right track or is what I am doing completely wrong?
