filling an object in design spark
June 29, 2016 02:16PM
Hi all

I have drawn an object that has no fill, and now I want to fill it.

What ever I do I cant get it filled. I also try to fill a combined cylinder and a cube.
Also no success.



it are 2 cons and I need to have it filled in between.

anybody that knows how to do that?

I don't know how you drew it, so I'm not sure what I'm looking at, so I can't tell you how to fill it.

I would draw an object like that as a profile, like one half of a cutaway view.
I'd draw four straight lines and two spline curves between them. You might have to draw the curves using a different technique if you're trying to have a specifically defined profile.



Then use the pull tool and select the "revolve" option,



and sweep through 360 degrees.




Done. It took me all of 30 seconds to draw this example.

You interpreted the picture correctly :-)

I didn't want to loss the curves, they fit an rubber and metal object.

But some how design spark didn't like a full surface model to be filled, when I added a cube covering have of the model. it started to fill it without any problem.
removed the cube again and did a circular drag. and then i was fixed.

little bit strange.
