Thanks for taking the time to look at this. I have a part here that I am trying to create a parting line for and with the configuration of the part, it is difficult for me to achieve. Can someone advise on the best approach to this part?
Use a split line with silhouette
The parting line will be along the yellow stripe and the mold makers know it
Why you want to show the parting line ? you got this model from an import body without sketch so it'd be hard to create a profile along the parting line
you can create a spline by tracing along the yellow stripe and create a surface from the spline
then user the surface to add split line on your model
But the question is: is it necessary to do this?
Thanks for the help. Right now this is just a quote. My goal here is to hone my skills as this parting line is a little more complex than what I have achieved so far in Solidworks. I don't have to show anyone the parting line, I just may have to create this if we are awarded the job.
IF this is the case, then then the image I showed in the previous msg is more than enough. it will show your customer the core and cavity sides
However, it your really really want to show the parting line, then create a spline by tracing the yellow stripe
Thank you, that is exactly what I was after. How would you guys go about creating the cavity pulls with this one?
excellent choice for this
