Problem creating the shape I need with a networksrf


#1

Hi,
I am trying to create a complicated part with a lot of smooth continuous surfacing. It has a flat front for an LCD screen and a rounded back, almost like a smartphone. I’ve been trying to use network surface, but I keep getting a pinch point in the back (even though my guide curves that meet there are all tangent/perpendicular). The trickiest bit is the bottom, which I want to have three flat surfaces for resting on. The sketch and screenshots of my first and second attempts should explain this a little better.

What I need help with is creating this back surface. I’ve been trying to do it with a flat bottom to make things easier (with the idea somehow adding in the 3 sided bit later), but have gotten stuck. If there’s a way to do it all at once, then all the better.

Thanks for your help

Can you isolate and post what you are trying to do with NetworkSrf including the surfaces you obtain?
