How do i create a straight knurl on a cylinder?
Good morning Gaetano,
Straight Knurl? Do you have a sketch or a picture of what you need?
Here is a Helix Knurl;
Send me your email and I can send you a doc to show you how.
Could you just post it here? I'd be curious to see it as well. We have some knobs that we make here at work that have straight knurl. I make them by just doing a cut and array, but if there is another way that might work better for me, I'd like to see it.
I tried but the forum kept telling me it was to large, not sure why, the doc was only 125 kb.
I don't like to model knurls or threads unless necessary. Helical features really bog down the system.
If the knurl is machined, I just use a cosmetic thread to represent the knurl and note it on the drawing. If the part is molded, then it seems necessary to mold.
The few times I modelled a knurl, I made a single helical sweep cut, mirrored, and then made a circular pattern.
Do you mean just axial grooves similar to some thumbwheels.
