Giving Parasolid a Run For Its Money (curvature combs are supposed to do 10 loop-de-loops, right??)

alnisalnis Member, Developers Posts: 452 EDU
Currently working on a final project that is due in about 13 hours... wowee, lofts sure can produce some wild geometry! I'm not sure if I've ever seen curvature combs do loop-de-loops quite like this.

If it rebuilds, it rebuilds! Off to the 3D printer.

 

PS Sorry for dropping the ball on some tutorials I've been promising. This quarter has hit me a lot harder than I expected :s

    lol yeah shelling after lofts can struggle sometimes. You can always split out that area and use a delete face and fill surface, but given your timeline I'd say roll with it  :D

    Ah, I completely forgot to follow up on this! The final project turned out great! We managed to get a penny whistle to play "Mary Had a Little Lamb"... robotically! Being a physics major is a blast when the coursework isn't hitting you over the head with a brick.

    Here's a video:

    Nice @alnis! Your robots are always cool.
    I used the brick method for a while, then switched to mechanical engineering. Less bricks.

    Thanks @MichaelPascoe! Yes the bricks can be pretty impactful when they are coming from the Physics area. I set some new records for the lowest I've scored on an exam. My GPA has, well... not increased that's for sure. But the experience was very fun and I don't regret it at all!
