Working on a pair of sunglasses fit for 3d printing, firtst time for me.
For CNC, I dont need to draw the groove for the lenses, but for 3d printing I do.
I have drawn a 3d sketch on the edge of where the lens has to be. I want it to cut extrude 1mm to the side and 1mm into the frame, creating a 1x1mm groove for the lens. i am able to get a preview when i use a cut sweep, but i get the Zero Thickness error :(
Anyone an idea for a solution?
A part of the contour of your sketch must be outside of the part.
here is the file with the cut 1 mm backwards
if i do that, i get a topologically invalid body... :(

thanks a lot!! what did i do wrong to get that topologically error?
looks prety much the same as i did, only you defined the complete contour sketch..
thanks, i already got that, i simply moved the 3d sketch ;)
somethimes.. its so easy (most of the time.. its not!!) :)
thanks again Arestide
Another approach could be used to remove material and make the groove : If lens is defined in place, copy its surfaces and choose remove from surface, this should work. Not enough time to test by myself, sorry.
