View Full Version : Advice needed - Shooth transition (Rounding)

01-05-2005, 11:16 AM
Hello All;
I have one more question.

I am trying to figure out the best way to make a smooth, gradual curve between the thicker part of the wing and the thinner part. See attachment and particularly the upper/right view. It seems like the edges are too abrupt even after subdivide.

Anyone have any good ideas, tips, suggestions, recommendations, etc ... ? Thanks.

Those of you who are curious to see what I'm modeling, take a look at http://marsairplane.larc.nasa.gov/graphics/front_sky_640.jpg.

You can try the rounder tool if you're using version 8. Not sure if it's in 7.5 or not. You can select the points around which you're trying to round and then it will create a smoothing effect via additional geometry.

Hope that helps.

In a nutshell, more geometry. Based on what you have, the knife tool or bandsaw would work. Then you would need to adjust the new geometry to have a smoothere flow.
