Cylinder with base

Question asked by Nelson Lopes on May 25, 2018
Latest reply on May 25, 2018 by Nelson Lopes

I'm still very new to SolidWorks and need some assistance on how to create a part.  I need to create a cylinder that has one end closed (capped).  I am able to create a cylinder by drawing two circles of the correct radius and then doing an extrude to the correct length.  However, this makes a completely hollow cylinder and doesn't leave one end of it solid.  I'd need to leave one end about 2mm thick (solid).  How do I do this when doing an extrude?


The next part is I need to create 2 slits in the cylinder about .5mm wide from the open end down about 10mm.


Here is a picture of what I'm trying to achieve (only this one is slightly larger than what I want to design).


Any help and examples would be greatly appreciated!


Kind Regards,
