    Need help sketching a wire

    Mark Bisson

      Hey guys - fairly new to solidworks and I need some help

      on modeling a part.

      The process I started with was created revolved piece for

      the top part of the wire, then a plane .05" below the top

      plane that I could do a swept boss/base to after creating

      the circular part of the wire on that plane.


      However I was unable to do a revolved base on the

      circular part as seen below..

      I have also tried using the flex option to bend the wire in a manner that is close to the actual drawing.


      The bottom part does not need to be exact to the drawing

      as I'm just using this 3d model for an animation of an

      overall project and this plays a very small part.


      Let me know if I need to explain more as I understand

      this could seem vague to some people.
