Hey everyone, I was wondering how to make these angled cuts that are in the shape of a half circle.
Any help or advice would be appreciated, thanks!
If it were me, I would try making one of the cuts as a profile view with the chamfer included, and then doing a radial pattern around the cylinder. This is easier to adjust if you need to make changes:
Several ways to do it, but one would be to add a draft angle to the short face using the straight edge. Do that to the first one and pattern it around.
Hi Matt, I'm not sure how you would go about doing this...
If you put a straight edge up against the planar faces that you already have - are they really really planar on the real part?
If I understand you correctly, yes.

In the similar part that I have in my hand - the geometry is more like the Attached file.
But the size of my can is different than the one you have. Should give some ideas anyhow, but from my perspective - all of the responses given in this thread are essentially the same as the responses that were given in >>this thread<<.
Correct, yes the faces should be planar and not curved. Yes it does turn out the responses are similar, I started that thread as well lol.
Jake Uyeda - I would use a Swept surface - You need to adjust the sketch and amount of the patterns etc
This works too, thank you John
Thank you Ian, this looks very good!
This was the first method that came to my mind.
But John's idea is better.
