Build the basic profile curves with only BLEND
CURVES using the orthographic drawings. You must consider
the continuity for the curves, especially the curves that are
normal to the symmetry plane to ensure proper mirroring of the
Build the main surface with birail. To ensure
continuity at the axis of symmetry, copy the top and bottom curves
of the fairing and translate the so that small temporary
skin surface can be built. Make the main birail surface
with tangent continuity along the axis of symmetry. Is it possible other methods to ensure the
The fuel tank surface is now to be built using the top profile
curve and a new cross section curve that you will build directly
off the birail surface. First - ensure that the fuel tank profile
intersects and provides curvature continuity with both ends of the
Then build the new cross section curve so that it intersects
with your top profile curve and the birail surface. Ensure that the
curve is tangent continous to the axis of symmetry as well as being
curvature continous to the main birail surface.
Build the fuel tank (top surface) using one or more surfaces so
that they are continuos with each other as well the main birail
surface and axis of symmetry as required. Check the continuity with
appropriate tool when the tank is constructed.
Add details to the motorcycle fairing in the same way. Start by
adding a flared surface on the lower part and a recess surface on
the upper part.
Then build the air intake. Start by building
the small surface for the air intake by duplicating isoparams from
the main surface and using the square tool. Pull the end CVs
slightly of the surface inwards but maintain curvature continuity
at the start of the air intake. Is
it possible other methods available?
Add curves on surfaces to both the main and air intake surfaces.
These will be the edges for the recess surface.
Add profile curves that makes contact with the curves on surface
with the appropriate continuity. Then use these to build the
connectig surfaces (square or birail). Is it possible other methods
Trim the surfaces and check your continuity. How can you check
