Surface issues - How is this?

#1

Hi. I am trying to make a suface out of a Mesh. As you can see from the attached pictures, Zebra analysis on surface indicates the surface needs improvement.

I am attaching a few files:
A.png : Base mesh
View A: My output surfaces
View B: Shows a gap between two of the surfaces
View C: Shows some rippling type of effect. (I tried the smooth command, but didn’t have very good results).
Zebra.png: Zebra Analysis shows the surface is not very smooth.

The 3dm file is also attached.

Can anyone offer input about to make the surface(s) as smooth as possible and all the seams to match properly? A A330_1016B.3dm (5.6 MB)

you can use _Loft with some of the curves you have and then rebuild and adjust some points

You can get clues by looking at images. A key detail is planar glass surfaces.

Hi, @dvanauken

This type of pieces are modeled from profiles
to extract the profiles :
1- use the tween command between curves from and positive to negative and covering the front of the plane
2-project those curves on the mesh
3- try to rebuild the profiles to your liking
4- use record history and create a loft
in case you need to make adjustments to your curves again for better accuracy

I leave a quick example
Move 30 mts to the origin

If you prefer your method "by the way I like your method :slight_smile: " but it is best to work the surfaces cleaner and then create fillets to soften and improve its continuity
then I try it with his method.

Here’s a good example.
