Autodesk Inventor surfacing. An introduction to G2 Surface continuity

Surface moling is the art of building complex geometrical features - one surface at a time. Usually surface moling is used to create flowing, organic shapes, so the junctions between surfaces are terribly important.

In this post we learn about a G2 surface relationship - what is it? what does it have in common with G0 & G1 relationships?

Autodesk Inventor surfacing. An introduction to Surface continuity

Surface moling is the art of building complex geometrical features - one surface at a time. Usually surface moling is used to create flowing, organic shapes, so the junctions between surfaces are terribly important.

We describe the 'smoothness' of a junction, where one surface meets another, using the term 'G' (G stands for 'Geometry'). We can add a suffix to our G to describe how many like characteristics each surface has. The alike the surfaces (the conditions that match across the pair of inputs) the smoothly the adjoining surfaces flow.
