I am struggling to model these two things from a couple of days. Please find attached file. One is the numbers of small pyramids around the circular part and second is black rubber kind of part. Thanking you in advance.
Thanks for your reply, but I am fairly new to SolidWorks. I am using SW 2017. Will you do a favour model it and post screenshots or if you are using the same version, it would be great if you share file. I have to submit and the deadline is on Thursday.
This took me about 10 mins to model. You can do it. I sketched the longitudinal knurls in the initial boss and then did a revolve cut for the lateral cut. Use a rotational pattern in the sketch for the longititudinal knurls and a linear pattern for the lateral cuts. For the cut I left a .0001" gap at the peak so that the contour was easy to select. I could send you the model, but then it wouldn't be yours, right?
Well, the first question is.....do you REALLY need the knurl to be accurately represented in CAD?
It is pretty standard practice to define the knurl at the drawing level with a series of notes.
Alternatively, I have heard many people putting a textures into their models to graphically represent it without actually modelling it.
If you DO really need to do the knurls (this will WRECK your performance wherever this is used), then a pattern of simple cuts would do the trick:
This little part (2" in diameter and 2" long) took a few minutes just to display. So I would NOT recommend this method.
Thanks for your response. I am not in need of drawings as I am doing it for product visualization purpose. I am trying to model it from your screenshots. Hopes I will get it done.
Not having SW2019, and the 3D texture mode.I have tried a low pratical way, multibody part, you can use for inspiration.
Thanks bro!, which version you are using..
SW2018 SP3, so you cannot open i off course in sw2017..
Do some search on the term "knerl" here on the forum, there are plenty of discussions about it. Other than the how to do it there are also many reasons not to do it unless it is absolutely needed. The short answer is that it is very memory intensive and will slow down any assembly that it is in. There are appearances of knerling if that will cover what you desire. Here is one link.
So the school project is due Thursday. Will we all get credit for the grade? Contact Rick Becker he might do this for you
