  1. Hello everyone, I hope you guys can help me out. I am trying to prepare a part for 3d Printing and to save material, I want to create "arches" that support a freeform surface. The issue here is, that I have to make sure that there are no overhangs between the arches, so the upper surfaces of the pillars need to be next to each other at all times. I was hoping to do create a grid of 10 by 10 mm rectangles on top and 5 by 5 mm rectangles on the flat bottom surface of the part and then project the 10x10 mm rectangles onto the surface that is to be supported. With this method I will ensure that there are no gaps on the roof. Unfortunately, i haven't found a working method to connect the upper and lower grid in a fashion, that they respectively create the pillar structure. I also tried making the pillar structure first, duplicating it and then projecting the upper rectangles onto the freeform surface to update the entire thing...no success. My Question is, does anyone have experience with this kind of design and knows an effective way to design this? I would hate to create each pillar individually. Thank you guys in advance and looking forward to figuring out a solution to this.First tries at figuring out the seperate steps
  2. Hi guys, I've been trying to figure out a way to Project a flat curve onto a bent surface so that the curve will actually wrap around it. Alternatively I would also be quite happy if it were possible with a surface. So far I have only Kind of managed to do this by using the Stretch tool and choosing a surface to Stretch along an extracted curve of the surface. This however distorts the original surface and since I don't know the exact measurements of the bent surface, ( customer file) it won't automatically use the entire lenght of the extracted curve... In General I am not very happy with this method and know that in other CAD programms there is a more simple way to Project the curve so that it bends around a surface. Is there an alternative to the Stretch tool in Solidthinking as well? I have attached a simple Image of the Problems that I have and what I'm trying to achieve: I am trying to get the (experimental) curve with "teeth" to follow the curvature of the Long surface. The part on the left is the attempt using the Stretch tool together with the extracted Profile curve. This is not a clean Job, is there another way to get this done?? Thank you very much for your help and I am looking Forward to Hearing from you ! Nick
