Coincident curves across sketches

Coincident curves across sketches

Coincident curves across sketches


Currently, I am trying to surface a shape which consists of two guiding curves forming upper and lower boundaries (coincident at one end) - on the same plane (say XY) - and a cross-section at a point along the curves, on the XZ plane. My issue is that I cannot get the two curves to be coincident and therefore surface correctly.

Hopefully, I explained this correctly, and I will attach a screenshot to help.

My question is: am I able to join curves on different planes/sketches to create one 'closed' shape?

Thank you, I am happy to provide any more information needed

RE: Coincident curves across sketches


Yes you can. You need to associative project the endpoints from one sketch to another. (you can also project the whole curve of course)

The resulting point you can use to attach the other curves coincident.
One tip... The sketch in the first image. Don't manually create the curves on both sides of the axis. Use the Mirror curve function instead.
