|Help needed: How to apply inward curved surface to line model? [message #59710] Sun, 06 January 2013 09:58 UTC
I want to make a model of this railway snow-plow.
I have a copy of the official drawing with contours/frames.
From this I've created the shape below in Sketchup
But when try to apply a surface (called Sandbox in Sketchup) to the frames Sketchup makes a mess. It doesn't seem to handle inward curved surfaces.
Any ideas on how I shall create a surface like this? Is there any (free) tool better suited to this task than Sketchup?
Thanks in advance
