Constant sweep cut

By Ana Ga on 11 Jan 16:06 3 answers 645 views 2 comments


I have created a wave to be cut on a cylinder with a triangular shape.

I have succeeded to create the loft cut but I have discovered that in the peak and trough areas the angle of the 'cut' changes.

I have tried to play around with the settings of the sweep but this is the best result I got so far.

Can you please help me.

Thanks a lot!

    Try this model. It creates the sweep as a body, then it is patterned, and removed from the main model.

    Hi Inspire. Thanks a lot for your help.

    I have also tried other options and manage to get where I wanted.

    Now the problem is that I would like to pattern the wave 4 times on the cylinder but it doesn't allow me to do so,

    I dont really understand what I am doing wrong :(
