Wooden snail with variable cross-section.
I have a problem with designing wooden snail. Does anyone know how to make the subject of the photo? Which operation should I use?
So I fixed it and the full tutorial can be found here:
This is my wood snail which I've done so far. I have a problem with smooth rounding at the start and end of snail.
I use a SolidWorks 2010. I don't have a some of the options, that are in newer version of SolidWorks, like SW 2012.
Stephen, Can you show me your FeatureManager Design Tree? Or do for me tutorial, if you have a time of course :)
Santorius, Your first project isn't perfect because this snail will be milled on 4axis CNC milling machine. This means that the edge and surface, marked in green, must be rounded. I have a similar model but i have a problem with rounding those elements.
Your next model is perfect for me but it's made in SW 2012, which I haven't it. I would like to make this snail with SW 2010, but I'm not sure that ia can do this in 2010 version.
