Making The Mandalorian's Helmet- How can I Cut Out His Cheek Inlet?

neev_kanwarneev_kanwar Member Posts: 2 EDU
Hi! I am working on this helmet for a class and am not sure how to cut this out. I am relatively new to OnShape so it may be pretty easy, I am just not sure how to do it. Basically, I have made 2 projected curves and intersected them with my cylinder for the helmet(screenshot attached) Now, I want to get that projected curve to "cut" a hole into the helmet. Thanks for the Help!

    Thicken may work, or split face.

    Try to thicken the orange surfaces and subtract them from the helmet.

    Yes, split followed by delete body to remove the "cheek". But it looks like there is some weirdness at the upper border/corner of your surface. You probably just need to play with the tangency direction at one of the edges.

    Thicken could work, but it also might fail if the cut is too deep or the curvature of the surface is too steep.

    Also, in order to ensure the split works well, make sure the cutting surface extends well beyond the helmet volume. Right now you can tell part of the edge sinks inside the helmet volume. In that case a split would fail.
