Trident: This model of a famous spear shows how to make advanced geometry without using surface features. This part was created with only standard solid body features. Even though the final model is a single body, there are some multi-body techniques to allow for isolated cuts and a shell feature not affecting the whole part. The features used in the trident part include: revolves, lofts, move face, combine, mirror, scale and one delete face.

Setting up your simulations is a straight forward process made up of just a handful of steps like defining your materials, loads, and fixtures – capturing the real-world environment as closely as possible. And before you can move on to the most important step of meshing, you need to define your contacts. This is where you define how two components or bodies interact with one another. How you define these contacts, or interactions has implications on the way the geometry is meshed.

This technique is often used to specify revolved bodies such as toruses in relief grooves, cones in chamfers, or shoulder heights on shafts and holes.

Alle Techniker kennen die Schwierigkeiten, die sie erwarten, wenn es nicht gelingt, die Workflows und Daten der Elektro- und Mechanikkonstruktion zu integrieren. Eine Panne in der Kommunikation führt bei der Fertigung mit kostspieligen Prototypen und diesen gefürchteten Konstruktionsänderungen zu steigenden Kosten.

Welcome back to our 4-part series where we are celebrating the Fall season by modeling a pumpkin pie spice jar. In part 1 of the series, we began laying out the pumpkin shaped jar and in this portion of the series we will use a unique Extruded Boss option to create the label area, we’ll hollow out the jar using the shell tool, and run through an easy way to apply a custom Thread to the design. So, grab a cup of hot apple cider, press mute on the football game and let’s get started with part 2 of
