Best method to make a cut on an odd shaped face

By Robert Beres on 09 Feb 02:52 3 answers 5 comments

I am trying to create a rudder and I am wondering the best way to cut the rudder or create a smooth edge that comes to a point. I wanted to simply use a chamfer or a dome but due to the odd geometry it wont work. Any pointers?

    This is one possible way to do what I think you are trying to do...I have SolidWorks 2013 so my file would be useless. So I am putting in an image and a step file.

    Just a minute I will put up a picture of the draft/taper function.
