Simple sounding question... i have a surface with a hole in it that I want to fill in. Boundary blend doesn't seem to work. How do I go about filling in the hole with a surface?
It's good to know about the (hidden) option to fill the holes when copying and pasting quilts, but I do think that the remove function seems more appropriate. It was mentioned in this old thread that the function doesn't work on "edges", but seems Creo is more capable now.
Hole removal example illustrated in Creo 4:
RE: Boundary Blend
Old method: Create a datum curve at the 2 hole vertices, create 2 blended surfaces from this, then merge these surfs with the original surface and end up with one contiguous surface...Just saying.
a) Create a datum curve "diameter" using the 2 vertices of the hole feature. (Where the half-circles meet)
b) Select this datum curve "dia" and one side of the hole. (I.e. half-circle)
c) You can create a blend surfae from these 2 entities.
d) Repeat for the other half.
Please see attached figure.
Hope this helps.
Extrude > surface > cut at the extents of the hole in an appropriate 'square' boundary, back fill with boundary blend with tan boundary conditions.
