Current Problem - the two end surfaces are just flat surfaces
Target Cut-Revolve Outcome - How the end surfaces can follow the round cylindrical faces?
Regarding how to upload files to the forum: I copied and pasted my reply to Dennis on the same topic a while ago.
If you click on the "Used advanced editor" text in the upper right corner of the dialog box,
The Attach option will be available in the lower right corner, along with some additional text editing stuff in the top toolbar. You can attach practically any type of file, not just SW types.
Also, if you need to post a SW assembly or drawing, use "Pack and Go..." to a zip file so that all the needed part files are included.
This has been a confusing part of this forum forever, and figuring it out has become some sort of initiation rite for new users. Someone somewhere must have a reason why the text can't be made more clear, as to what it does and the fact that it is clickable, but they have never seen fit to tell us.
Alik, can you upload your part for us to look at. What are you using for your end condition?
Hi Tom, Thank you for your attention on my question. I'm a new comer in SolidWork as well as this Forum. Yes, I don't know how to upload file here. Can you show me the key steps?
Thank you so much. I uploaded the file. Let's see anybody can comment a little bit
There are some features that are like columns in your part. These probably were created using a sketch and an extruded boss. After you did your cut-revolve it created some new surfaces or faces on these columns. One option is to use the sketch for these columns and add a new extrude boss that goes just far enough to remove the new faces created by the revolve cut.
The other option is to perform your revolve cut, open "delete face" tool from the surfaces menu, use the "delete and patch" check button within this tool. Then select the new faces/surfaces that were created from the revolve cut and choose yes. For me, this delete face tool has some personality to learn how to use it or how it thinks. So some trial and error is needed to learn this tool. For your part it should perform the function fine due to the surfaces being simple linear or revolved surfaces that surround the area you wish to improve. However on other situations 2 delete face features could be required to accomplish this so that the feature can think well.
Change the order of your features. Or add an extrude boss to fill in the "flat face" area. Or delete face & patch. Or multi-body part file.
Hi Jesse, Thanks for the suggestions. I'm interested in "Extrude Boss" and "Delete face & patch". Do you mind to share me a little bit more detail?
Hi Alik, Here is what I did. I suppressed your cut-revolve2. I then created new sketch's on the surface where the cut is shown (my sketch10). I used these new sketch's to extrude surfaces about the midplane. I then reused your original sketch8 and did a cut-revolve3 and used the end condition of up to surface in direction 1 and direction 2. All set, nice and smooth.
Hi Tom, Thank you so much. I did it also.
Then, it comes another issue. When I applied the CirPattern, in order to make the function works, it must select the Geometry Pattern in Option. However, the result is not what I expected. The end surfaces are not lie on the cylinder faces anymore.
