Re: Any efficient way to design this?

@BenBroadThis will work well for straight sections (like the example part in this case), but I have cases where these 'sections' need to be created on a curved surface. In those scenarios, it's very difficult to get a solid body created from a tool using commads like extrude or even swept volume. I'll attach one image here where I have a similar case, and swept volume just made things even more worse.

 

EDIT: I have created a new post with all the explanation. I am using swept volume as suggested by @sdeters.

@Paras_R; As you can see there are so many ways to achieve your design intent the way you want. So, selecting an appropriate and efficient path depends on the design challenge you have for a specific task. Unless you provide them clearly and specify them properly (what is it; Points? Curves? Crossections?...,) there is no use that we spend our time blindly.

@mike_fdoI just wanted the community's suggestion and their way of approaching the design in the case if they face one similar to this.

 

I personally feel this as a challenge itself to think out the most optimum way to design something.
