How do you work on placing holes on the corner edges of a cube block in making a part
If I needed to locate nuts on a corner and weld them in place I would consider milling a shallow slot instead of drilling a hole, depends on what you have available for tools and how many you need to make. I'd probably consider using square nuts too. From the SW standpoint, you'll note that I rotated Kelef's weldment 45° so that I could use a default plane to sketch on. Also, if you want round holes setting the weldment so the default planes go thru the corners would allow you to use a 3D sketch to locate your Hole Wizard holes with out adding an additional reference plane. Of course it all depends on how you are going to use the assembly, it might be more convent to locate in other assemblies if you leave the weldment at the default alignment.
You could just do a revolve cut.
my take on it
have a good'n kelef
Perhaps Tom or Kelef have already answered your question, but I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are trying to do. Could you elaborate a bit?
I have a 2" square tube that is 10" tall with a 1/8" wall.
I need to place (2) 1/2" clearance hole on one of the (4) vertical corners 1.5" from the bottom with 3" bolt hole center
These holes will be covered by welding (2) 1/2-13 nut over them.
I am new to solid works itself and have only seen videos of the standard use of the sketch planes.
I hope this helps
maybe post your SW part attempt til now,
and attach sketch/drawing- kelef
It sounds like you can use the extrude-cut method.
Holes require a planar surface or plane feature to position and orient.
my take on the description by Tim
and then weld captive nuts? kelef
Mine too. But I might rethink of how to weld those nuts in place Something like a pocket rather than a clearance.
maybe this is where you're trying to get
pack'n go zip assy.file att.
hope this helps- have a good'n kelef
@Tom_Dirriwachter - we're a long way from "place holes on the corner edges of a square block"
but this is what I understand
I WANT TO THANKS YOU GUYS SO VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP IN TEACHING ME THIS!!!!
Deeply Appreciate it all!!!
