I'm trying to model my pen in solidworks. I'm having trouble with the grip. I have the general shape of it, but I can't figure out how to put those grooves in it. I tried an extruded cut, but the shape just wasn't right.
Is this a homework assignment?
it's an in class assignment
I think I shouldn't model for you at the beginning
As Rob pointed out, there are few diff. ways to do this.
you can add 2 or 3 profiles and loft or swept cut
A revolved cut would be my next try? It should give you two variables to play with
Normal view to the tip end. Draw a circle that partially intersects. Cut through.
Just looked at your model.....don't use surfacing. Especially if you're just starting out.
You could make the grip in a revolve....a cut like I mentioned.....then a pattern
