The Combine command makes use of separate solid bodies within a part. By using this tool, solid bodies volumes can be added together, subtracted, or produce a solid from the common volume between bodies. The Combine command makes use of separate solid bodies within a part. By using this tool, solid bodies volumes can be added together, subtracted, or produce a solid from the common volume between bodies. Use the Subtract option within the Combine tool to subtract one solid body from another. Use the Common option within the Combine tool to result in a solid produced from the intersection of solid bodies.

Create a variable radius fillet where you set the radius value at selected vertices and control points. Also, you can set the radius to zero to force the fillet to converge to a point. Create a fillet where the radius varies along the selected edge. Modify the radius value at vertices or control points. Create zero radius fillets where the fillet must converge to a point.

Learn to use modeling techniques that allow for efficient transition between part design and delivery of the finished castings. Create a motorcycle gear case by designing the production tooling for the part. Start by designing the core, or the negative space, of the gear case. Design the pattern, or outside faces, of the gear case as a separate solid body. Save the tooling bodies as new part files. Combine the solid bodies, subtracting the core from the pattern. Apply machining features to finish the model.
