Hi people, I'm a newbie here. I'm trying to create mold for a chain cover. I've been working on this over the weekend but could not resolve this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
..as John suggest,.. it's a pretty easy part... so, start with a parting line (the perimeter).. and.. (see video attached)
(oh, btw, you may want to add shrink (scale) the body before doing the parting line)
I think you are trying to make the mold for this part
You could use the mold tools in SW and it's easy and convenient
Follow the steps, draft analysis, parting line, shut-off surfaces, parting surface and tooling split
Hope this helps
Yes John, I followed exactly what you posted there: parting line, shut-off surfaces, parting surface and tooling split. But when I went to the tooling split feature, "Cannot knit sheets together" error showed up.
Can you post the file with error to have a look?
I forgot to include one of the surface in my knit. And Paul's post below also helped me get it done. Thanks John!
Awesome Paul! Thanks a lot!
