STEP 2 – creating surfaces
With Sweep1 command create two sweeps. One with rail and one section, and once more for the other section:
Now, trim the surfaces we don’t need. Check the image below to see which ones you will leave :
Using ExtrudeCrv command extrude top planar curve we created earlier (extrude it down just so it crosses our surfaces):
Trim again, and Join.
Trim the lines, and using Fillet command with 2 as a radius create fillet between two lines. After that Join them.
Using Sweep1 make a surface out of the red curve and the new one:
Trim it, and Join it:
Now, with FilletEdge command and 1 unit as radius fillet these edges:
And you should get something like on the image below. And you have created the base body of our RC.
Using Copy and command line option InPlace copy this surface, and hide one.We need to copy one curve too, so Copy rail curve, and with left section curve move up by 1 unit.
Make two surfaces with Sweep1 like on the image below:
Using SrfPt command, create two more surfaces like on the image below:
Ok, now, like you already know, we are going to trim the excess.
Using FilletEdge command and 1 unit as radius, fillet the edges:
Using Trim or Split trim the RC surface:
Using OffsetSrf command, offset the sruface by 0.1 upwards.
Using Pipe comand, make a pipe along upper surface’s edge. To make one pipe, in Pipe options in command line click on ChainEdges, if that still does just parts, then you should do one edge part at the time. But make sure you turn off cap option. Then Join those pipes into one.
Ok, and now Trim the upper surface with that pipe.
Now, unhide all other objects, and Join back the body of remote controller. Using FilletEdge with 0.05 as radius, fillet the edges:
