Can I create a hose from already modeled connectors and how?
I am trying to connect caliper brake with gear pump in assembly, but there non fitting connector so I modeled it myself, now I need to create hose from those connectors.
- create a new component in the assembly
- Draw a 3D sketch while in edit part mode of that new part. The 3D sketch is the path the hose will take.
- Then use the Sweep command to "drive" a circle along the 3D path.
The result in a "hose" which connects your two fittings.
Try using 'routing' in Solidworks. Watch this video regarding this topic.
