How to sweep an evolutive shape (solidworks 2012) ?

By Marcellus.wallace on 20 Apr 20:51 4 answers 666 views 0 comments

Can someone tell me how to create an evolutive shape in solidworks ?
I designed a seaplane float, the upper shape is done but I have some trouble creating the bottom part.
I want this surface to start from a parabolic shape and to evolve to a simple V shape at the end.
I think I made a mistake using 3D and non 3D sketches or maybe it is the combinate use of splines and straight lines as profiles.
I attached my file, it is very simple shape and I hope the design is clear enough.
It is made with Solidwork 2012.
Thank you for your help !
This part is inteded to be milled as a master and to be fiberglass molded.
