Creating a 3d lozenge shape

Recommended Posts

Can anyone advise how I create this lozenge shape in VW2017. I tired drawing a 2D version of a rounded corner rectangle - extract - and then use Fillet Edge, it won't work. Please see image I would like to create thank you!

I don't have 2017 available, but what you suggested above (extrude rounded rectangle and then fillet top edges) worked well in VW2020.


If the radius of the corners and the edges are the same you could extrude a rectangle and fillet the vertical and top edges at the same time. The extrusion will have to be at least a thick as the fillet radius to make it work.


I am assuming that you are only talking about the top pink part in your image. To do the whole thing I would make the top using the method above and then Add Solids to connect it to the other pieces. Or if the parts need different colors/textures I would either make a group or a symbol.
