The final part of my fremantle boat design for the upperdeck animation needs to have the boat number ( 211 ) added to the boats bow and stern, and I originally decided to add the extruded text on both sides but I couldnt get it to bend to path accurately so that I could 3D add to either side ( I did get the bend to path close but on closer inspection I discovered that using a spline with fit points just distorted the shape ) so I just decided to do it in a different manner.
So after extruding the 3D text and then turning to a somewhat perpendicular manner to the boats bow, I then used the extract face from body of both the inner and outer surfaces of the boats hull ( port and starboard ), then moved away the outer solid object for both port and starboard hulls by 5mm, then converted these asic solid objects to surfaces, then turned off options -> degernative faceting and create part tree. Then sliced by surface using the inner surface for each internal boat hull and then sliced again for the outer surfaces that were move by 5mm and it worked fine.
Both 3D objects clearly show that theyve been sliced all the way through with a suitable object that can be 3D added to each side of the bow, but both the 3D objects are still attached and not separated into 3 distinct acis objects as expected.
Slicebysurface3,png clearly shows that the slice worked but the acis object is 1 solid yet the original 3D object was sliced 2 times, any idea why I got this result?
