Selection of 2nd Rib fails. How to fix this problem?
There is something odd about your sketch. I couldn't get it to work using it but after deleting it & redoing it, all worked OK.
It is coming if I deleted most outer circle. I do not know why.
And don't forget to save this as a block for future reuse! I have more than a few of these saved for my uses of cooling fans in sheet metal designs.
It's not a block Bernie Daraz, it's a feature.
Thanks Steve! I was aware of that, my comment related to my belief that he was changing something in the vent feature and why he had errors. I had created a few new tool designs for use in CNC turrets punching sheet metal for these venting purposes and showing them below.
I see that the OP updated his actual use of the sketch so conversationally I'll add the pictures below.
This one was done to eliminate the assembly of the fan guards and their protrusion from the panel face.
I had these custom aluminum extrusions made to create a new custom look for these fans, they are 40 mm and have 8 fans that deliver up 192 CFM in cooling power. The back of the extrusion was removed as shown to create a pass through for the fans while 'hiding' them in what I believe to be an elegant manner.
This curved vent design was for 80 mm fans, the punch was used in a CNC turret press that had automatic indexing, the 29 hits were performed in less than 10 seconds, there were 3 fans installed in this version. Laser cutting was considered but too expensive for production.
This last one was again a new design for perforations on another 40 mm fan project.
All of these designs were to eliminate the tedious assembly required and also to offer a smooth front panel surface.
A render of the extruded panel shows essentially only the power switch, that was custom ordered as well. When the fan is plugged in the switch glows red, when running the switch glows blue.
All of these fans have been produced and are available from me! I accept PayPal! LOL! My apologies for that commercial break.
Bernie Daraz those are cool, I've done mine with just holes as I have to make it UL approved when people can get in there when servicing our pumps. Love those curved openings...
Thanks! These are all powered by wall warts so no UL approval was necessary. If you were to get your finger in there a few taps would result and you would stop the fan. Most likely, unless you had really fragile skin no cuts or blood would result either. I did some studies on the actual airflow and discovered what it actually looked like, that led to the curved design.
This is a YouTube video. And final design is this.
Check your revolve sketch Maha, the centre of the arc should be coincident to the top plane to give you tangency. There's a small dimple at the end of your vent.
This is an interesting approach to achieve the outcome, and uses some interesting features. But there are other ways of achieving this form.
Just remember to be mindful of what you wish to learn from youtube videos.

What are the other ways?
Not saying this is right, or better. Burt it achieves it faster, and in my opinion is somewhat more logical.
But you did perhaps learn a trick or two with the vent feature and the 'common' operation of the combine feature. So in that respect the tutorial you did is useful.
