How To Model This In Solidworks

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Been a while since I've posted here, nice to be back!

 

I'm trying to model something in Solidworks. The design was knocked up in Modo (free form modeler) and having some real problems replicating it in Solidworks.

 

I have attached images of what I'm aiming for - as you can see, it transitions smoothly into the main body which is cylindrical. I thought I could achieve this using a boundary blend with tangecy to face set on the edge on the cylinder , however I'm getting some serious distortion and can't create the linking surface, I also need to be able to control the tangent length various sections, which a boundary surface can't do.

 

I think I must be taking the wrong approach, any ideas would be REALLY appreciate....pulling my hair out here.

 

Thanks folks.
