I am trying to make a ball joint for a project, but I can't find out how to make a sphere or a spherical cut. Help please?
Hi, see the attached model as an example of a hollow sphere created using the Revolve tool.
sketch the size and revolve
also good to include some horizontal and vertical construction lines for mating to other than tangent to the sphere
hope this helps
There's actually a ton of methods that can be used to create spheres and sphere cuts. The simplest method is shown by others in this thread: use revolve or revolve cut. This allows you to create the sphere shape in one feature.
Thanks guys, I'm still just learning this stuff. I appreciate the help more than you know.
As Alin and others have said, there are a number of ways. You can even create a solid sphere by extruding a cube and applying a fillet to all edges. (I'm not recommending that method, but it will work.)
