By osher on 28 Oct 14:22 3 answers 12 comments

Hey all hope someone can help because Im going crazy
1. I want to make an outer/inner ring in the middle of my part (pic included_cone) that will be 2 mm thick from the edge of the cone.

2. Im trying to make a "skirt" shape on the same part and hollow (shell) it out but all Im getting are errors, Iv tried so many options but none of them end up as i want (project file cone_2)

many many thanks from advance

    @osher, I didn't understand your question, and didn't understand what you really want to do.....
    Where the picture of what you want finally get?
    BTW, your version SW earlier 2015, so look the video ->
    I think that it's what you need -

    PS. This whole part could be done with single revolve operation..;)

    sorry - i do not have solidworks here (at work) - so I can't open the partfile.

    can you build model as 2 seperate solids? then try shelling it... combine afterwards.
