Hi, there does anyone know why I cant have more than 359.5 degrees on the revolve feature of this cone to have it to work as my sheetmetal part? is there an easier way to do this kind of sheetmetal part?
I don't have the answer as to why you can't reduce the gap.
When revolving cones, it's more efficient to use a thin-feature (single line) as opposed to sketching the sheet thickness.
Using a thin feature I can go down another .1 degree.
An easier way is to use a lofted bend.
I would attach an example but you're on an older version of Solidworks than I am.
Have you tried modeling this as a lofted bend? This is how I like to do it, I can define the weld gap at that point. See attached file.
just a sample/thought
att.prt file uses variables/equations
so you can cone your heart out
hope this helps- have a good'n
Heres a good one sloted funnel
lofted bends are the way to go
