We need to draw a line in a sketch that bends virtically and horizontally at the same time. We were able to do this using a bent surface, a sketch and wrap sketch. But there's a part of the sketch that is left out and doesn't wrap. Here is the .par of it.
Can anyone help fixing this or is there an other way of going about it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm no expert with surfaces by any means but if you remove the arc from the sketch and replace it with a line the full wrap appears.
Plus, I don't think the problem is in the surface. The same thing happens when you wrap the sketch on a protusion feature.
Could this be purely because of the size of the model? ....remembering there is a Parasolid 1Km cubic entity limitation, about the origin, which your part exceeds. Can you break it down at all?
Also, I ran the geometry inspector, and it returned the following errors.....[not sure if they are relevant, or related to the size limit]

I can't open your file(ST8?) so can't comment on the curve sizes or error.
However, I can suggest using a Cross Curve as an alternative method.
Just create the 2 curves as sketches then select Cross on the Surfacing > Curves group.
No need to create surfaces or wrap sketches etc, it just creates the inferred intersection of 2 extruded surfaces.
