      hello everyone


      a triple loft
      three circles on three parallel planes
        I do the loft
      I have to change the diameter of the central circle
      with any parametric, in this case I used zw3d , file gif ,
      I go back to the sketch I modify the diameter and it's over
      spaceclaim the sketches eats them when I do the loft
      how do you change the diameter of the central circle?


      regards

      I would like to design a loft like this with spaceclaim
      and
      I would like to change the diameter of the central circle
      with spaceclaim I can not
      see the red arrows that indicate the central circle
      in the drawing done with zw3d

      Hello


      This is much easier in Design Modeler as shown in images below.

      Hi, 


      On another note, if you want to do it in SpaceClaim then it may be possible through scripting.

      Great!


      Can mark this as 'Is Solution' so that others on forum can benefit from it. 


      Thanks!

      Design Modeler allows you to modify the original curves that occur before the Blend.


      As SpaceClaim has no history, the way to achieve this, as ruggerostark points out (in Italian), is with the Tweak Face tool.  Inside there are Edit Method choices, and the one you want is Blend Curves. This reverse-engineers the minimum set of curves required to re-define the selected face, and allows for Control Curve, Move, and Scaling to be done to any selected definition curve. The neat part about it is that it works on faces in general, not just faces that were originally created as Blends. It effectively Edits the selected Face as if it had been blended.  This is patented and fairly advanced SpaceClaim functionality, albeit somewhat buried in the UI.

      all right
      However
      I had asked for the solution with spaceclaim
      but you gave me the solutione with design modeler
      I do not understand why

      Hi, 


      Sorry about that. I did know that DM can easily do it. I did not know SpaceClaim Tweak tool can do it. I also learned from you.
