see attached, needs the two rasters as well for the picture frame then you can see the objects shape I am trying to recreate.
I thought best use network curve to surface the sausage shape, but it asks for another closed curve no doubt lengthways.
sweep2rail I tried which would do all but the ends but was not the right shape despite trying a few options, ends I am unsure how to deal with anyway.
I have drawn the two shapes I know the shape of, so to have to try and draw a third curve which I would only know the shape of AFTER the surfacing was done has me stuck.
Would making this shape be best done this way, placing fillets between the sausage and the cylinder ?
or should I make more curves from the cylinder and do the whole thing with networkSrf ?
I feel that might involve even more deducing what the end result is before actually creating it, sort of need a crystal ball to create more curves.
Sometimes you have to try it one way and hope you get the effect you are after before committing to brain ache !
Could someone create this and indicate steps they took please.
