from curve to formula to extruded shape

Post by Johan Jonker » Tue Nov 07, 2017 5:51 pm

Dear TopSolid forum,

I am new to the TopSolid environment and want to implement some complex shapes in TopSolid.
One of the things that I try is to define a shape with curve to formula.
So I define two simple curves that touch each other. Then complete it to a closed shape with a 2D sketch.
When I want to extrude this only the curve that I select is extruded and not the complete shape.
What do I do wrong?

Are all segments of the curve in the same sketch? If not project them into a sketch.

I suggest doing the design tutorial that ships with the software. You can also find additional tutorials on the TopSolid'Blog here

Scroll to the bottom and start with design

Good luck
