    Who can Create a Shovel?? /Trowel with a Hollow Grip [what Do you prefer to use >>Surface Modeling Or >>Revolve (Shelling)

    Cadster Tigweld

      Hi Guys


      What is the Right Approach to Model this >>>?

      Can Someone Show me how make a Trowel in Solidworks? 6" Long(Scoop)+(5.5"(Grip) & 1.5" Deep

      Thank You



      But What i Really Want is a Trowel ( Small Garden Shovel) that needs a handle that can accept an insert.

      I tried Various Approaches which are attached to this Page , but Not getting what i Really Want

      I know its not too difficult to do but somehow i cant get it right


      Here are a few Designs that we came up with


      The Grip is actually a Hollow- Circular Sleeve for a Rod that is 10" long and has a radius of 1.5 on one end and a 1" radius on the other end.. The Rod Slides into the Scoop and the cap screws on.


      I tried to model it with surface modeling but failed


      Please look at the Solidworks Part that is attached Various Approaches are adapted

      Here -- Like a REVOLVE and DRAFT  to do this part

      I need to Remove the excess "meat" ( Excess Meat is the material between the Lofted Handel and the Outer Existing Face of the Revolve --The Shoveling Part/Shaft Edge)

      I tried Shelling But it removes all the material including the Insert all the way to the bottom of the Trowel



      Please Help Thanks In Advance

      Please Reveiw Attachments Especially File Called  "Good A"
