How to replace solid face with surface face?

By David Keating on 24 Nov 01:20 2 answers 1195 views 2 comments

How am I able to transfer a curved surface face onto a sloped solid face in solidworks? I am designing the sole to a shoe and need the top face to be 3-dimensional but am not able to transfer my face onto the solid part already created. appreciate any help given please see picture for reference.

    My understanding of the problem is that you want to use the surface you created as the top surface of your solid. I would have started my model a little differently but with what you have here is how I would achieve what you are looking for.
    Here is a link to video of me doing it.

    These commands are not on the standard feature ribbon by default and you can add them if you use them a lot, or do like I did and just use the command finder search bar.
