Solidworks smooth transition from surface to surface-knit

By Andy Cho on 12 Jan 07:33 3 answers 376 views 1 comment

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to model a blended wing aircraft in SolidWorks. I encountered a problem where I can't figure out a way to get the landing gear (Boundary-Surface5) to flow smoothly from the bottom of the start of the wing (Surface-Knit1). In the current model, the landing gear protrudes past the top of the wing while I want to make it flow from the bottom of the wing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,
Andy.

    Hi Andy,
    First of all well done on your design. Its Nice. Now back to the qn. That can be archived by using the 'Extend Surface' tool to extend the upper edge of the landing gear( to remove the gap between the wing and the front part of the landing gear) and then using the wing as the cutting tool to trim off the extra part of the landing gear that goes beyond the bottom surface of the wing. Then you will have the landing gear attaching smoothly along the surface area of the wing.

    Attached is the file that I have edited for you to show this.

    I hope this Helps. Ask me incase anything is not clear.
    Regards,
    Yusuf.
