How can i do this in SolidWorks?
I wonder if someone could help me do this in SolidWorks. In Rhino3d i just use Curve Network and then boolean difference. But in Solidworks i tried many ways and it doesn't work.
Follow the SLDPRT attached.
The first image (white) made me think a revolved cut would do it. But the second image (black) shows a little curvature, so I think Cut-Sweep is a better choice.
Your third image with the "graph paper" floor shows what you'll need in solidworks. A plane down the center to sketch on. A curve running down the center of the future groove (this is your path), and a profile which is basically the semi-circular profile at the opening of the groove.
SolidWorks also has boolean operations (insert - feature - combine). So you could model each part, and subtract the unwanted one away, but that is an extra step.
Give Cut-sweep a try and see how it goes. Reply if it is not working, and maybe post the sldprt file so we'll have an idea of the dimensions involved.
The swept cut do not work. see the attached image.

This shape can be make easily by 2 methods..
1st-The "Revolve Cut".
2nd- it can be possible to get this shape by -
Inserting the new part (in which shape do you want to cut) and assemble it where you want, then use "Combine Command (subtract)".
subtract inserted file from main part...and you can get this shape easily on the object.
