I need some guidelines on modeling this attached handle. I have started from left of handle (2). and come up with 3. but don't know how to get get curved shape in 1.
Attach the *.sldprt file of your attempt here.
Please find attached file for your reference. Thanks for your consideration.
If you Edit Sketch1 and attempt to click and drag geometry - what do you observe?
Is this really your true Design Intent?
Why did you scale the body rather than modeling at true size?
What would help me model the part is orthogonal pictured from Top, Front and Side.
I would then place these images on appropriate planes and scale to size.
Then with the images as reference and calipers for measuring, I would create the (fully defined) sketches from Top, Front and Side.
Then I would start making decisions about how to create the actual geometry.
So my very first step before even starting SolidWorks would be to capture those 3 images of the part to use as reference in modeling.
There is good reason why most pros would recommend that you fully define your sketches.
In fact, SolidWorks should be doing this for you???
Sorry for late reply. Yes you are right. My sketch is not fully defined. Actually i am not a width and height guy but rather i am a max user and we are used to model by eye balling mainly. My reason to do model product in solidworks is its ability to make changes fast than max. But thanks for your time and consideration.
Have a look at the Loft and Boundary Boss tools.
Also search for the 'Surfaces & Splines' series on youtube, by DiMonte group.
Hey Steven, thanks for your inputs. i m trying tools suggested by you.
Is it possible to see the bottom view of the part as well?
Take the tips from above + model this item w/o that chamfer or any fillet, add your draft to the interior and then to the exterior of that D shaped area, then chamfer & fillet it out.
Where did you go?
Did you figure this out?
Perhaps he is not interested.
hey maha, I am sorry for late reply. I appreciate your effort that you spend your time to model the part. I am attaching some more pics. I am struggling in mainly two areas. image 1 and two , where there is a curve which form D and another is bottom shape where curve is from broad to narrwo(3 lines.)
Top view, why no Front and Side images?
This is what I would expect to see from your photos.
The actual names are arbitrary, but the three standard views (of six) should be orthogonal (the isometric is not really needed).
Ref: Gaspard Monge and Descriptive Geometry
In a drawing in addition to isometric view it represents three views Top, Side and Front.
One view shows a region is there whereas other shows that region is not there. I do not know why?
In my view this Front view is necessary to make a correct judgement.
Actually i think its a reflection of a wooden part. i don't have handle physically with me. i have received photos only from client. in J. Mather image isometric view looks good to me
..it's basically a top/btm surface with blending between... (image)
