This tutorial introduces the Construction Mode for constraining sketch geometry and also new features: Polygon, Equal and Fillet (in Sketcher) then Thickness and Polar Pattern (in Part Design).

Modelling Plastic Cover in CATIA V5

11 4 Beginner
In this tutorial, we will first create a shaft feature with thickness, in CATIA V5 using opened sketch. Then, we will apply a circular profile pad using 2 limits and add a concentric hole to it. Later, we will add a stiffener between the pad and the shaft created, and apply edge fillet all around it. Lastly, we will create a circular profile pocket and apply circular pattern around the shaft axis.

2 0 Beginner
Hi welcome back to CADable. Here I am starting a new playlist related to basic tutorials of SOLIDWORKS. This is the 4th tutorial of this playlist. It is a good exercise for beginners and it will be a good practice for beginners. In this tutorial, we will learn these commands: 1) Basic 2D Commands 2) Extruded Boss 3) Shell Command 3) Multi-Thickness Shell 4) Color 5) Evaluate 6) 3D Dimensions Kindly use play pause technique for practice. I have attached files in the description for practice. Feel free to ask your queries in comment section. I will try to answer each and every question. Keep practicing as practice makes a man perfect.

What is zero thickness geometry?

0 0 Beginner
Zero thickness geometry is when a feature is created that can not be solved due to the fact that there is precisely zero material at only a point or an edge. An example would be if you created an extruded circle that is tangent to an extruded square. There is a good explanation here: http://help.solidworks.com/2012/English/SolidWorks/sldworks/HIDE_ZeroThickness.htm I've reposted the general guidelines from that site below as reference.

Super hack to create hollow objects for 3d printing in Rhino

0 0 Beginner
This is a quite easy “hack” how to create hollow objects that are usually not allowed by other CAD programs. Great for 3d printing. Simply connect the outer and inner objects via some random pipe or box, then join everything and untrim the hole that connects them with the ! _Untrim tool. You will notice that the two original separate objects now appear as a single object instead, despite the lack of an actual connection in-between. An alternative way is to select both objects and use the following commands: NonManifoldMerge, then CreateRegions, then delete the region you do not want, such like the core inside the sphere in this particular example.
