How to insert the Hump inside the channel?

      Hello Everyone,


      I was wondering if anyone could help me with this problem.


      I was trying to insert the hump at the bottom of the rectangular channel but failed every time. I tried various options such as Boolean subtraction, Cut material, Slice material...but there was no success. If I try Cut/Slice material, all other previous Body Transformations such as Rotate and Translate fails... I would be really grateful if anyone could help me in this regard.


      Thank you  


      With regards

      Hello


      These are the steps that I performed...


      1. I imported the points from a text file


      2. Used the 3D curve to connect all the points on the curve on that plane


      3. Connected the two endpoints of the curve with "Lines from points"


      4. Made a plane


      5. Projected the sketch of the curve


      6. Extruded it and then I rotated and moved it.


      The final position should be at the bottom of the channel (inside it) and I am not able to do that. 


       


      I failed to perform the Cut/ Slice Material operation or even Boolean.

      Hi, 


      From your description it looks like these two bodies do not intersect each other. They just touch each other. Is it right?


      If yes, you need to create single part of two bodies and do share topology to get conformal mesh. 


      If you dont want conformal mesh then you can leave both bodies as different parts.

      Hello Keyur,


      So after I performed the "Move" operation, the Hump and the channel combines into 1 body (Earlier which was shown as Hump and Channel separately under 3 parts 3 bodies which include also a Line body that makes it 3 parts 3 bodies)


      So after this, I want to put the hump section inside the Channel and I am not able to do that Is there any way possible?

      Please use Translate instead of Move if possible. 


      Also you can use preserve bodies option.

      Hi,


      I just used the translate option, preserved the body and the body moved to my desired location. To be sure that my Hump is at my desired location, is there any way to check that? This is how it looks right now. 



      Thanks

      You can check visually if its in desired position as you want.


      You can also click any vertex and its coordinates appear at right side bottom. 


      From image it looks like two bodies have gap between them. You may want to move it by some distance to make them contact.

      Thank you for your help. I found out the solution. 


      These are the following steps that I performed:


      1. Imported points from a text file.


      2. Connected the points using the 3D curve and the endpoints of the curve using "Lines from Points". This generates a closed body.


      3. I then made a plane where I projected the curve and made a Sketch out of it.


      4. I then used the "Surfaces from Sketch" option 


      5. After that I Extruded it keeping it as frozen


      6. Lastly, I performed Boolean subtraction 


       


      Thanks and Regards
