Title: Church window
Post by: Andy H on May 07, 2018, 01:34:51 PM
This proved to be quite a challenge to get right, because it is curved in all three axes,  and in the end was a compromise between what I wanted to do and what Genie would let me do.

I thought I'd post it here in case anyone was bored and wanted to figure out how they would construct the window. I used mostly lofting for the actual window, but lots of small sweeps may also work.

In case anyone wants to have a look (only the 3d object not any profile nor materials), I put the file on my site (http://www.woodturningcad.co.uk/tcstuff.html) rather than take up space on the forum, one for v20 Pro (ACIS) and one for 2016 deluxe.

That's a great job with an intricate model, Andy. I don't understand the bit about it being curved in all three axes.

Sorry Henry,  I didn't explain that well.  Looking from the front, as well as the normal curvature what I would call x and y, the window parts where the glass goes are also curved in depth, like a blend rather than being box shaped or chamfered. still probably not explaining very well,  I've no idea what the correct term is.

Fascinating.  The brick wall almost looks as if it is undulating.
