How would I approach this drawing?
I'm doing some practice projects, but I'm stuck at this drawing which I've attached below.
I don't know how to get the hex face to align with the angles given.
I've tried to extrude the ring first before cutting the hex out and then giving it a pattern, but my angles are off.
I've also tried wrapping the curve, but I'm not sure where to go from there once its wrapped on the ring's face.
There's sth. wrong with the dimensions...
I've tried using those dimensions but ended having only 10 hexagons, not 16.
I even didn't get to use the angles, just made a hexagon with 22 cm from side to side, then patterned it.
When I tried getting 16 hexagons, the side length was 15 cm, not 22.
It is a terrible drawing to work from.
I've made a model that has 16 openings, but a little more work would be needed to clean up the results and merge it into a single solid body.
I looked at the model again and made some small changes (-B model). It looks like the "Hexagons" do not have sides of equal length, so instead of using the polygon tool, I manually drew them to match angular dimensions given.
I also cleaned up the edges of the model so the circular pattern would allow the results to combine into a single body.
SOLIDWORKS models attached are in version 2018.
The image showing the basic outline of construction remains the same.
The only dimension I did not have was the size of the holes.
Here is how I did it.
