I used split lines and i got a separate surface , however when i render i can't see the parting line . i tried creating an offset sketch from the parting line inner to it and trying to trim away the excess parts of the door surface so that ill get a gap . Once i get the gap i can use ruled surface to create the required effect on the render . But the trimming didnt work and im not able to get the gap !
Split lines are used to split faces so as to apply different appearances or boundary conditions.
My solution is to apply offset lines for splitting.
Let me jus clarify , to create offset lines i made a sketch on the right plane . I used the convert entities option to get a sketch of the split lines , and i made it into construction lines and then offset it on the inner side . Isnt that all ? Now using the new sketch , i tried to trim the extra surface off ! but it didn work :(
why no split line on the surface and then apply appearance to that face. I faced the same problem with trimming so i applied different appearence (i.e. invisible type)
I tried to trim with this sketch bro but the entire side of my car goes off . From what i can make out the entire side of the car is considered as one surface and the split line that i've made has no effect on it during trimming ( At other times the split lines make the door a separate surface )
I tried adding the invisible appearance too , but it shows no effect in the render man ! Tho in the model i'm able to make a clean gap between the surfaces ! Thanx for that method . .
I checked it out dude . . still my prob isnt rectified !
