  1. Hi Everyone, I would like to model a stand size BSPP 1/4" type part with internal and external threads that will work with standard 1/4" threads. I can't seem to find a way to cut the profile and feeling a little lost on the point where I pierce on to the helix. Could anyone help please? Thanks. My Solidworks 2014 3D CAD file is downloadable here - https://www.hightail.com/download/UlRReUNHSytENlQ0WjhUQw
  2. Not sure if my profile is correct and I can't figure out where to pierce the profile. Can anyone help please ? Thanks.
  3. Hi Everyone ? Can I find out how to create 2 deg Drafts on this surface when there are existing fillets in the original file? Thanks.

    Solidworks Draft Edge With Fillets

    Yup Kevin ! It worked ! Didn't know delete face has a patch feature in it. Thanks !!! Tried to upload the finished file but it says upload failed. The zipped file is about 76kb. Any ideas ?
  5. Hi Everyone ! The general rule is we draft first then fillet right ? What if this is an imported file (iges/step/parasolid) that doesn't allow me to go up the tree to do the fillet first ? How do I apply draft angle to the walls of the fillet ? Thanks !

    Small Bottle Modeling

    Hi Ragde ... i'm a newbie to surfacing ... Having issues with the shoulder as well ... boundary surface selection. After selecting both curves, there seems to be 2 other curves formed. Is it correct? See shoulder1.jpg. To get the curve of the shoulder as close as possible to the spline @ the 15degree sketch line, i had to adjust the tangent length to 1.2 for both selected curves. Am I supposed to move the 2 blue dots to the same position as shown in your tutorial? How do I change the direction of that arrow? See shoulder2.jpg. Hope you can point out my mistakes. Thanks !

    Sw2007 How To Create A Side Core?

    Here are 2 possible solutions from Bildder - Pawel Keska from www.cadvantage.pl Thanks !!!! yeah ... learnt that indent is a simple way to resolve a simple part ... solutionsA.zip solutionsB.zip
  8. Having this issue with forming a slider ... I can only get half of the profile in the side core area. Can anyone help point out what is missing please ? Have SW2009 too .... THANKS ! SW2007 - Side Core Design

    Sw2007 How To Create A Side Core?

    can anyone teach me to do a sidecore on this part?
  11. A: extrusion not very effective for non profile shapes ... might as well as look at injection molding it all the way B: Injection mold might be possible depending on the function of your bucket. (need it water proof or single volume body?) You can injection mold it by halves and assembled via screw threads ( more expensive ) or just male/female interlocks ( simpler ) C: Not sure if blow mold would b possible ... there's some cut off excess perhaps that you might not like. D: You could combine B&C. Roto mold would be a possibility too as it gives you a single piece plastic container with inner walls. But like Karl said ... sizes would matter. Roto molds are for large parts right? Like Oil Drum or large dustbins ?
  12. NX = Unigraphics NX - also a very popular CAD program that's more for CAM. Surfacing is quite user friendly ... that's what i heard

    Parting Line And Surface For Tool Split

    oic bilder ... Interlock might be good for the tooling but it's extra machining and materials. Interlocks can be placed on the mold base itself or actually that's what guide pins and bushes are for already isn't it ? Can you attach the files for reference? I could get someone to open it up for me to look thru how the interlock option and indent command works. The commands are available in SW2007 as well. Thanks.
  14. Hi Everyone ... I'm on Solidworks 2007. Having this problem where the parting surface ends up overlapping. Resulted in this jagged sketch in order to create core/cav. Can anyone figure out what I could do to fix this? i reckon some where I missed out some surfacing steps? Thanks GooseNeck.zip

    Parting Line And Surface For Tool Split

    had a lot of difficulties SPLITING THE @#$@#$ Draft !!! Do I really have to do fillets after drafts ??? I can't even add fillets in sketches ??? Here's the amended part for anyone who wants to look at it or check if i'm correct Thanks guys ... GooseNeck2.zip

    Parting Line And Surface For Tool Split

    Hi Pavel, Am I correct to say that firstly I need to get the parting lines in a closed loop using split lines (whether in flat plane or different curved planes or offset planes). Then create automatically using parting surface or in this case its easier to create a parting surface manually (using extrude and then trim off the solid into 2 surfaces) and finally adding it into the parting surface folder. The draft angles are minimal @ 1deg except for the end area. Have modified it. What is interlock surfaces and Feature - Indent? What happens when you create the parting lines? 2 surfaces are created with respect to the parting lines right?

    Parting Line And Surface For Tool Split

    Sketch 22 is like a random sketch w/o dimensions to fit within the space of the parting surface of 4.5mm perimeter surface. It splits fine and I have to extrude it back into a solid block with proper dimensioning for the core/cavity inserts. Is this normally how you would do it for tool split in a part like this? Yes. I thought that normally the sketch 22 would be a simple rectangle for a planar parting line. Why do I get error when I increase the parting surface to 4.8mm? It says it can't knit surfaces together? There seems to be some kind of overlapping surfaces. Hope this helps you understand what i'm confused about ... i'm just learning as I work on this tool split. THANKS!
  18. hehe my BAD ! i didn't create the co-ordinate system on the part before exporting ... Sorry ... it works now ! beautiful ! Thanks Guys !
  19. Hi Using Solidworks 2007 and have this part that's imported from .step but the origin and planes are all over the place. Anyway I can move the origin so that the planes are within the centre of the part? Otherwise I'd have to re-create datum planes right? Thanks. Bobby
  20. Bildder: Yeah ... just set a new reference point on the part and move/copy it to the origin and save. Default planes all ends up in the right place ... yay ! Zxys: I can't seem to select co-ordinate system when exporting it out as a parasolid. There is no other option at the output co-ordinate system apart from Default. This should be a good option as well ... doesn't work for me Under-Dog: yeah ... i could re-do this in solidworks ... what happens if it's complicated ? The thing is there's always a work around or walk around so I'm just glad there are actually 2 possible solutions hehe Thanks
  21. Hi ... having some issues with extrude cut a sketch to an offset surface. The red portion can't be removed. Am I doing something wrong and how to resolve? Thank you for your help ! Peg_rev0.zip

    Extrude Cut To An Offset Surface

    Yeah ... tried that with the right plane extrude surface and use the sketch to cut. Same issue ... but SW doesn't feel so lost when I use the surface as reference ... Thanks !!! Now the tedious task of giving drafts ...

    Extrude Cut To An Offset Surface

    Hi Paul ! ic ... i'm confused with why the program's confused with my selection !@?#% It works too if I take the 1.50 with reference from the edge of sketch to the surface. Thanks a lot !!!! What do you mean by checking by doing a manual surface extrusion? Use the same sketch but extrude surface? This part requires tool split. I'll have to include all the drafts before all the fillets right?

    Tool Design Enquiry

    Hi Everyone! Was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of determining parting lines and subsequent tooling splits? Have no clue on this ... If those faces are covered, it'll be straight forward but now ... wild guess ... do I require 2 side cores for the 2 front openings? click here for zipped file Thanks a lot!

    Tool Design Enquiry

    Well ... if anyone's interested ... Smanikot's file is as attached. I'm still a little confused ... but hopefully I'll get there ... Think the file format has to be winZip? Tried uploading winrar and it didn't work holder_parting.zip
