How do I draw dividers inside a open cylinder like the manual drawing above?
The easiest way I can think of is to draw a sketch line on the top of the cylinder and then extrude down as thin feature. I tried rib but couldn't get it to work the way I expected. You will have to draw each divider as a separate extrude as SW won't let do multiple lines.
The simple method would be to use ribs. You can use multiple lines in one sketch itself
Thanks Deepak, is it possible that you send the solidwork file you got over in this forum? Would greatly appreciate it!
Can you Attach the *.sldprt file of your attempt here?

Darryl, I've attached the file but would strongly recommend you to share your file like J. Mather has suggested so that we can review it and guide you better.
Yes. I noticed when I tried to use rib the circumference of the circle was "converted to entity." Got rid of that and rib worked. Notice in Deepak's drawing there are only lines in the middle of the circle.
What is the end product?
What is this going to be made of?
How is it going to be formed?
If it is an injection molded part, then extrusions, and ribs make sense. This should allow you to add draft, as needed.
If it is going to be a metal part, maybe sheetmetal, or weldments is the answer.
Even if it is going to be plywood, a good trick is still to use weldments.
Either way, getting a weldment to end at a curved surface requires a bit of "fudging".
End product is supposed to be a three part cylindrical shape attached to each other and the bottom is made with dividers so that excess water will leak from the middle part to the bottom. The water collected at the bottom can be detached and stored in the freezer to make ice
