Hi all, trying to create a custom thread using a helix and a swept cut. I am getting 'operation failed due to geometric conditions. Does anyone have a suggestion on what may be wrong?
You need to have your profile sketch coincident with the helix in one point.
I suggest you that you move the helix up in the feature tree, then draw the profile sketch to be coincident with the helix.
and more importantly : read the online Help !
In addition to Jerome's reply:
1. Helix/Spiral4 should be before Sketch16 in the feature tree.
2. The Helix starts at the 315° position and Sketch16 is at the 0° position. They need to be/start at the same position so that...
3. ...Sketch16 can have a coincident or pierce relation to Helix/Spiral4.
4. Fully dimensioned/defined sketches help keep control of what's going on. Sketch16 is not defined, nor are any of the others.
The included tutorials are really helpful to do to get a grasp on how to model.
