Im dont want help modeling, and I dont want my patch layout checked thankyou. I had my physical recently ) … If you are interested in solving specific problems, I have posted 2 so far, Tangency & Split that remain unsolved.
I understand where you are coming from. My project isnt super secret. Some of the people replying to this thread know all about it. I also understand that Engineers just want to tear into the specifics of the project and solve it. If you want a shape, picture a bathtub, yes seriously, and the problem of calculating how much water it holds. That should not be this difficult.
As i said thats like giving me a fish. I eat for ONE day. I am asking more general questions in this thread so I can learn to fish. I have had to defend why I am using a tight tolerance, and why my curves dont line up. I did. I am capable of modelling this once I grasp whats required to make surfaces match.
Diving into this specific challenge is just going to change the focus to the specifics of the model. There are many threads that do that. This one is a more general discussion, with your permission )
I am willing to bet many people have faced these challeneges modelling. In my discussions with people they all they say the same thing - practice for 6mo then you will “get it”. Most are not willing to be this pushy and procative. I do so to expand knowledge for more than just myself.
I have watched a lot of videos, read a lot, hired experts - some that posted in this thread, worked on this for months and STILL surfacing results I desire elude me. Is this a problem with me failing in the ways you suggest, or is it that surfacing needs a LOT more discussion from a first principals perspective?
I am not sure what you kmean by patch layout. Perhaps you could post a link to a video or thread… that way those that follow can benefit also.
As for being way in over my head, Ill ignore the condescension and remind you that all experts started where I am. I get that this thread is irritating to you, but some surprising and illuminating answers are emerging.
