Fritag Posted February 25 Author Share Posted February 25 (edited) Quick update as I sit with a coffee at Leeds Bradford Airport waiting for a flight to Geneva. Been a busy week with work seeing as I’m away skiing for a week from today; but I have used some MacBook time on the Defiant. I couldn’t leave the whole fillet-failure-lofted-workaround as it was. It offended me. I eventually persuaded Fusion to accept the inevitable and churn out a few fillets: Renders nice and smooth: I got there by dividing the top part of the oil cooler into separate extrudes and Fusion condescended to allow fillets to the individual sections. It was a case of trial and error and slowly identifying where on the border between the oil cooler and the nose Fusion was having its hissy fits. For example, Fusion just plain refused to calculate any fillet that ran over a small section wither side of the centre line at the front. Dunno why. The solution was to divide the oil cooler into separate sections that Fusion would fillet, leaving a small gap where wouldn’t And then bridge/fill those gaps with extrudes from the neighboring section. What a palaver. Anyway. After that I was able to finish all the surface detailing on the nose at odd times over the next few days. Port: Starboard: Rear quarter view. And I just had time to print a test at an unfavourable (but quick for printing) orientation - and take a quick photo before heading for the airport and skiing. The test print/photo doesn’t do it justice - but it’s something corporeal at least. Edited February 25 by Fritag 28 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
