I am trying to insert a pore in the head of this spindle, but am clueless on how to put a hole through a rounded face. Any ideas?
I first created a circular sketch on the front plane as such:
I then used a cut extrude with the "through all - both" end condition in direction one as below:
This makes a hole perpendicular to the plane and as such is usable for things like a pin to go through.
I hope this helps.
See if #28 at FAQ - Part 2 will help.
Not sure if i am missing something put would a cut extrude create the geometry you want? (see below, i created the profile on the right plane)
I am looking for a complete diameter. I tried working on the right plane as well, can you shift the plane so it is not centered in the object?
Sorry i meant the front plane and so do you mean this result?
or this one? (used the end face as the sketch plane)
Its the first diagram, how did you manage this?
Great, got it.
Why don't you just use the hole wizard like Glenn Schroeder suggested? Its way easier and faster.
Thanks and sorry for keeping this discussion open but I am stuck again. How can you make these two objects in an assembly.
I've noticed that your turn-screw has a thread on it but your G-clamp hole does not. I'm guessing that this was supposed to be purely for cosmetic reasons given the amount of thread area that is exposed, correct?
As for putting these together you would simply use a "concentric" mate within the assembly and you could also define it with a 'distance' mate if you so desired so that the turn-screw didn't just loosely slide through the hole.
Can I ask, are you a student by chance and is this part of a project or assessment?
I was able to figure out the mate command for the most part, I ended up taking the threads off because it seemed to mate better without them. This was my final product:
I am a student, however I'm learning Solid works on my own this summer, (with the help of this forum). This was a practice exercise. Thanks for the help!
Read this post as it shows a brief way I was showing somebody today of how to create a offset plane. Adding a plane to a rounded surface
Is that really supposed to have a left-hand thread on it? (Just asking)
No I clicked that by accident, thanks for catching that.
You don't need a plane to put a hole on a round surface. 3d sketch will place it on the surface of wherever you select.
