Can someone teach me to create a convex heart shape? Thank you
This is far from perfect but it’s a start…
Please skip my video and follow the video from @Istvan_CEO_Shapr3D below.
Or like this:
I tried it this way originally but wasn’t able to use more than 2 guide rails so the result was horrendous
I created 3 guide rails then attempted to loft using them.
I selected the first and the body snapped to first guide rail.
I selected the second and the body snapped to the second guide rail.
I selected the third and the body snapped to the third guid rail but un-snapped from the second.
I tried it with straight guides just as in your example as well as creating guide rails rotated around the centre like spokes of a wheel, The results were less than desirable each time.
I’m not entirely sure what is going on
That’s weird. Can you share a screen recording?
This is a little embarrassing…
I recreated the heart the way I originally did it with three guide rails… and it worked
Thank you your help, but It seems I can’t make the ellipse intersects
to heart line. Can you teach me ? Many Thanks…
@Derekwong, I experience exactly the same issue.
I can’t seem to get the ellipse to intersect correctly with the heart.
However, if I sketch using the spline tool to create a guide then I don’t have any issues.
@Istvan_CEO_Shapr3D, Yesterday I had an issue where I wasn’t able to select more than two guide rails. Each time I selected the third guide rail the previous guide would de-select. I closed the program and relaunched then tried again with no issue and have not been able to replicate the fault.
However, I have two other issues/glitches…
- Just like @Derekwong above, I am not able to snap an ellipse to the edge of the heart.
However, I am able to manually sketch a spline which snaps just fine and can be used as a guide rail.
- Normally, to create a 2D view I would either double tap a face or select the face then click the space bar.
When I double tap a face… nothing happens.
When I select a face it assumes I want to extrude (which is normal) but when I press the space bar it deletes the “0.0mm” from the box and waits for me to enter a dimension.
