Wrap a quilt around a solid

Wrap a quilt around a solid

I have a quilt with approx. 2500 surfaces. This was a laser scan of a textured part. The file was flattened in Geomagic and exported out for me to work with.

What I have is a round core for a mold. The quilt needs to be projected to the core(above parting line).

Looking for ideas(of course, better then mine).

Thanks

Welp, looks like 'Warp' is where I need to go with this.

Need to figure out how to use it with a spline(s).

Re: Wrap a quilt around a solid

Why not just wrap a blanket around it instead?

Thanks! I'll be here all week.....and please don't forget to tip your wait staff!

Re: Wrap a quilt around a solid

if you have a decent quilt you can make a solid block and just solidify cut the quilt out and then move on. not sure why you would flatten it to work with it.

Re: Wrap a quilt around a solid

Hope this clarifies for the jokesters and everyone else that might have some input.

This is the quilt. There's over 2500 surfaces here.

This surface has been flattened in Geomagic so we can manipulate......In Geomagic. Not ProE.

The warp feature in Pro will bend, but I can't get it to work with splines for an accurate wrap.

Thanks

Re: Wrap a quilt around a solid

Why??? Texture is almost never added to a part. They photo-etch it in the mold. IF, and that's a HUGE if, you can even do it somehow, it's going to be so distorted from the original "flatten" back to the final "wrap" as to be completely useless. I seriously doubt Pro/E could even do so many faces.

Good luck.

Spooge,

Can you provide the .prt file of the flattened "texture"? This would be very helpful in order to search for a solution.

Re: Wrap a quilt around a solid

I'm well aware of texturing. We have a laser for this.

The term "textured" that I used was the only way for me to describe the quilt.

Ufortunately, I cant't get into detail of this project.

The goal is to get the surface from a flattened state to a wrapped.

Thanks

Re: Wrap a quilt around a solid

Try a spinal or toroidial bend.
