I often need to use sweep two rails.
Why is it that 9 times out of 10, the resulting surface has an edge that perfectly matches the rail curves, but one time of ten, the resulting edge is different?
It is not clear to me why I would ever want the resulting edge to be different. I drew the curve so it would follow it.
Anyway - this has caused me great pain - trying to hunt backwards to figure out why I have naked edges. Zooming in and discovering multiple lines where I never intended to create any.
Furthermore, when I “patch” a surface and use either all surface edges or all curves, I get a surface that also has naked edges when joined to adjacent surfaces.
Can anyone tell me what’s happening?
p.s. I use one template for all my work and so I’m not convinced this has to do with tolerances. I never change them or the general scale of my project and yet this still occurs unpredictably.
