Thanks a lot Jim, I appreciate your time. The intersect command or Boolean intersect was exactly what I was looking for, since it will show you where you think the object is intersecting and if it’s not, then that is the problem in the command. A mirroring error, etc.
Also thanks for suggesting the time saving trim.
Usually on simple stuff I trim, but on more complex stuff lately I’ve been liking splitting things. Reason being it shows you what you trimmed or are going to trim, you can stick some bulk ugly mess on a layer if needed, and if you click on the wrong stuff and make an error, youre gonna catch it right away. With trim, stuff just disappears and there’s no way to check your work and the original are gone. So if you do make a mistake in selection, realize it, do the command again the cycle could just continue. Where as with split you might only make the wrong selection once, go back and figure out the best selection method. There both good, and trim is a lot cleaner in workflow, but an error early on, can turn really aggrevating later on.
Also, thanks for the heads up on the fillet edge command. Really, for the most part I’m trying not to do extrusions at all, and build better shapes using sweeps, and building surfaces with crossection wireframe type stuff. I know those types of surface building methods are more stable, you can do history, and generally much more complex shapes.
So, does anyone know why fillet edge is less accurate than fillet sfc? What is the command computing in fillet edge vs. sfc?
Also, as you’ll see here, the object that was originally in question with the most problems, still has the side edges of the priginal shape in the corner, with some really funky looking triangles. Whats the deal with this? Any Ideas? Yes I can trim it, but even after trimming, it takes some of the inner edge off. So, This isn’t making any sense. I started with a completely closed curve, with the side edges split from the main squiggle curve in the file. Then joined and extruded.Do you think one edge was a little longer by a hair when I was using end snaps or something?
