I am trying to cut a tangent hole (Normal to) in a sheet metal cylinder. To be laser cut & TIG welded.
Everything I have tried has given undesired results so far. Banging my head against a brick wall.
Just another way to do it.
One way to do it? I just made a plane and cut with the pipe profile:
I think it would help to model the circular part as a sheet metal - then do a "normal" cut with the normal to option.Then it can be flattended and laser cut -
Make sub-assembly - attached pipe to hole in pipe
See attached for my suggestion on the pipe part
This suggestion is giving best results
Is this what your trying to do?
Thanks again guys.
Real world results speak for themselves.
Looks like the Lost in Space robot, kind of...
Thanks for the pic. We all love to see finished work or in this case, feature application.
WARNING! WARNING!! haha. I kinda wanna put a secont outlet on it now so it has two arms.
Only stands a bit over waist height, so tis just a lil robot.
