G3 surface condition for a nose cone - help

Hi there,

I am trying to model a nose cone/end surface with G3 surface conditions (as shown in the image below/ZIP file of model attached). I am using PTC Creo 7.0.

I have sketched a number of reference lines to control the length/width/depth of my surfaces, as well as adding ribbon surfaces. All of the spines in style have G3 end conditions (including the internal influencing spline). I am seeing the error reference a lot:

 

"The cross curves are not connected with the same continuity as the connection"

I am not sure what this error message is referring to or how I should be modelling this feature to achieve a G3 surface? If you can help me out, I would really appreciate it!

Attached is the equivalent G2 nose cone. So simple...I'm not sure why the G3 version is so much more difficult to achieve?

Has anyone on here been able to create a G3 nose cone using style? I'm beginning to think that it is a limitation of Creo, as this is an easy thing to achieve in both SolidWorks and NX. Creo seems to make every operation about 3 times as much work lol 🙂

You are actually in the wrong group. This is Creo Elements/Direct Modeling.  Direct modeling can create surfaces, and then connect them to create a solid.  It can use parametric and formulas, you can also do it free with just sketches.
