It needs to have ribs and use the extrude and revolve features. Any help would be greatly appreciated I am unsure of where the best place to start would be. Thank you in advance!
It's difficult to explain to somebody new how to model. You're probably just going to have to start somewhere and make some mistakes and redo some stuff.
With solidworks, it's easy to back up and change direction if things aren't going your way.
Start by buying a cone, measuring the dimensions of what would be the first revolve and create that. Then start doing revolve cuts and extrude cuts to get the various features. It should be pretty quick.
Go thru the tutorial from SW software and build your own model it's a good way to practice your SW skill. Don't worry about a good/bad way doing it
Once it's done, post your model on the Forum and guys here can offer all kind of crazy ways you can't think of to make it looks REAL !!!
how would you suggest making the patterning and texture on the cone?
Create Helix - to suit
Sweep along the Helix
Circular Pattern the Sweep
Mirror the Circular Pattern
