Shell failed :-(


#1

The shelling (0.8) of the upper face is not working. Check please.

You have two tangent cylinders that cannot be extended, you have to add either two planar surfaces or a tangent surface between the two cylinders.
I made an example with a tangent blend.
Rhino would need to have a lot of added intelligence added to this command to ask for your preference in such cases.shelled x.3dm(233.9 KB)

Interesting Marc. I’ve looked at both files. Not sure I understand what you did and what you mean by “have to add either two planar surfaces or a tangent surface between the two cylinders”.

Would love a series of the steps in the layers or a video example. I know that’s a lot to ask, but would be sooo helpful!! Shells have been a problem for me as well. Would love to learn how to fix these situations.

This does seem to be something of a special case. I see that SolidWorks fails at the same location- the difference being that Rhino does give you a result you can work with to get the final result =)

The problem is because shell does not have the option corner=round.
