I wanted to know how to make a extruded cut (circle) in the middle of this base cylinder. Like a small opening in the middle.
There are various methods to do what it looks like you are trying to achieve. May be you should make your question more clear like the hole is in the axis of the cylinder/perpendicular to the axis?
Welcome to the forum. I agree with Krishna that it's difficult to understand what you mean. If you want a hole starting in the base of your model, just sketch on it and create an extruded cut Blind to the desired depth, but since that's so simple it's likely you mean something else. Please explain further.
I am sorry for not being clear.
What I meant was how do i create like a small cylindrical socket on the cylinder shown on the image.
In other words how do I extrude cut the shaded region shown in this picture.
still not clear to me.
Have you looked at
"Offset" From instead of "Sketch plane"
"Offset from surface" in Direction 1 instead of "Blind"
But it also sounds to simple to be your question.
Here's one method you can do:
1. Sketch the circle onto the flat back face of your existing cylinder.
2. Start an Extruded Cut.
3. Set the "From" setting to "Offset", and enter the distance from the back face to where the cut should begin.
4. Leave Direction 1 at "Blind" and set the length of the cut.
5. Click OK.
Note that you will not be able to make the cut circle tangent to the OD of the part because it would result in zero thickness geometry.
It might be easier to communicate with geometry rather than words.
Can you attach your *.sldprt file here?
