Page 32 Modeling a Sailboat: Rigging / Masts

Overview: In the front view, zoom Z in on the area where the two masts overlap, and notice that there are two braces that hold the two masts together need to be built.

 

Select the two masts and go to the top view and zoom selected ZS.

For this next part there are completed reference curves on the layer 'sail curves.'

Draw a couple of circles as shown below that are centered and a little larger than the main and top mast.

Connect the circles with tangent lines lineTT.

Trim off the two inner parts of the circles by making the two tangent lines the cutting objects and picking the inner parts of the circle. Join the four remaining curves. Extrude a 'Distance' of 3 and give it a FilletEdge 'Radius' of .75
