Hey all, was just wondering Is it possible to make a swept feature such as threaded neck for a bottle and use it as a library feature Im trying my best, but with no luck. if not what are my option for reusing the part and combining it with a different one in the future. thanks from advance,
Piece of cake!
'insert part' is the command you'll want to use.
You can either start a new model and use 'insert part' to bring in the swept threading and build your geometry from there, or you can build some geometry first and 'insert part' later to place the threads where you want them. They come into the new part as a 'feature' so if you need to make updates to the thread, you'll need to switch over to that model, make the changes, and then come back.
I've never worked specifically with bottle threads before so I wouldn't be much help in that regard. I'd probably start by google searching 'bottle thread standards' and see where that leads.
Maybe start another question specifically about bottle thread design, there must be someone else on here that's done them.
If you haven't tried it yet, switch to 'constraints' when in the 'locate part' menu and it will allow assembly-like mating to position the geometry you're bringing in. Sometimes it's easier this way than combinations of translate/rotate.
Thanks bro really helped, by the way a different topic I'm trying to model a bottle thread and corresponding cap and the info is minor. Maybe you know where can I find explanation on how to make machine bottle and cap including the thread profile thanks from advance
First thanks a lot Cool. yes I tried it but, seems a bit annoying trying to align the part I always tend to get trouble with this option. So as I understand swept arnt possible in library feature?
I see, iv found some tables regarding the subject, but I dont know how to use them all the info i found always show how the threads are made without showing how to really use the table and parameters and applying them in solidworks a bit of confusing hmmm . thanks anyway bro for your help
