## Best way to make this boundary blend?

Hi all

I was hoping for some suggestions on a good way to make this surface. I've got the edges in place but the nature of the curved back is messing up my boundary blends. I haven't got ISDX (style feature).

Thanks

Hi David,

i suggest spliting the surface into 2. Place another arc towards the point (similar to the one you already have at the opposite end. You will then have the means to create quite a nice looking surface using the 3 long curves in one direction & the 2 shorter arcs in the second direction. Finally, create the point, using the remaining curves, select both in the same direction. I have attached a picture showing something similar.

Regards

John

David,

Can yo post the Proe file? I'd like to play with it and see if I can make it work.

Hi David,

I suggest you try breaking your curve into parts and make up a number of surfaces. Good Luck.

David,

your geometry is symmetrical (I guess). So create one half of geometry and mirror it.

Thanks everyone. I actually did it by a combination of John and Martin's suggestions: doing half the yellow bit, mirroring it, then doing the grey bit.
