Creating a Surface from a Curve

KyuKyu Member Posts: 4


I wish to, in the following image, create a surface between the inner shape in green, and the outer circle:

When I use, 'Surfaces from Edges' though, it just makes a surface from the whole circle:

Which is not what I want. It's supposed to be empty within the inner shape. Which makes me think perhaps I need to use, 'Surfaces from Sketches', but I can't turn the inner shape into a sketch. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    Extrude a solid body of the inner shape so that it is both above and below the plane of the circle.

    Create a surface from sketch of the circle so you have a surface.

    Use Boolean Subtract on the surface and use the inner shape as a tool.
