Demoldable Blend

Pioneer

I stand before that well-known problem that I have to draw a fillet over the parting plane on a body with demolding draft, whereby this fillet should be perpendicular to the point where it intersects the parting plane. I don't want to enforce the exact course on the parting line just the angle.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated

I can't tell you how many times I run into this.

If you have an NX model you have to constrain the center of the radius to be "on" the parting line.

If you get a model from another system, well good luck.

lets say I don't want to sketch every section but use an existing feature like soft or styled blend directly on the body (see my screenshot).

 

I could also split the problem in two parts:

If I am able to generate this face, the second one could be a styled blend with G1 continuity (given that underlying geometry matches in some way)
