I would like to create a solid object (similar to a torus, but tweaked) out of several closed nurbs curves.
I took the surface->nurbs circles as a starting point. Then joined them and pressed “F” to create the surface/hull. Screenshot attached
I need it to be a completely full solid now (solidifying the hull is not good enough, because I guess there will always be a non-solid interior (inner hole) left, which is a problem with 3D printing. I attached a screenshot showing this.), to be able to perform a few (simple) solid operations on it, like putting cylindrical holes into the body (the cylindrical holes fulfill a mechanical task - an additional reason for needing the full solid: otherwise the holes are not strong enough). How can I close (“cap”) the ends of my “torus” now, in a way so solid operations can be performed on it?
Many thanks for your help!
