I am trying to create a hole in a polyline solid. I followed the directions on CA but get the error attached. I am trying to make my pool scuppers look right by adding in a hole inside the scupper.
And on a side note, 3Dwarehouse has some neat things. I always get tickled when I see those little water streams with the splash in the pool from the scuppers. Great find at 3D warehouse. But some things seem to be geared toward gaming, like finding a horse that had nothing to do with Roman warriors was a challenge, but I found a really nice one (pic also attached).
But any other free sources of good 3d objects?
Good Afternoon Users!
I ran into something interesting recently. I needed to create a concealed, angled, and twisting steel plate detail in 3D for a unique life size art project. Z-Axis: One tongue was angled at 3 degrees approaching the joint between facets/ The opposing tongue is angled at 18 degrees. X-Axis: these two tongues meet at 166 degrees from 0. Y-Axis: is perp to the 3 degrees of the Z-Axis Plates. Needless to say, my best description of the prescribed dual gusset plate. I see the geometry in my mind but there seems to be no quick way to create said object. Yikes! :-)
An object that can rotate, add/subt handles, re-shape any edge, in ANY view....
Maybe 10X will have what I'm suggesting? An "Omni-Polyline Solid".... See Attachment
Comments are welcome. Thanks!! Enjoy your Day!!
Here in the southwest, the need to cut niches and holes in various curved walls and shapes (e.g., Kiva fireplaces) comes up fairly often. Recently, I was very proud to have cut niches into a conically shaped Kiva fireplace (yayy for small victories!). Today, however, when I attempted to cut some holes into a curved terrain wall, I failed. Maybe I'm just tired. I converted the terrain wall to a polyline solid. Next I went into elevation view to create the shape of the hole I wanted with a CAD square. Then I converted the square shape to a polyline solid, then to a hole in polyline solid. Kept getting a warning "No polyline of the same type found to contain the hole. For example, no counter top or slab to contain the counter top or slab hole." Guess I don't know my *&^ from a hole in the wall. :-)
Thanks in advance for any help.
