How to model a golf club in SolidWorks using surfacing tools

Basic Step by Step procedure for modelling a forged golf iron.

  1. Step 1:

    Planar Club Face (hitting face)

  2. Step 2:

    Lofted hosel (non-circular)

  3. Step 3:

    Perimeter Edge

  4. Step 4:

    Back Face (Filled Surface)

  5. Step 5:


  6. Step 6:

    Another view of the fillets

  7. Step 7:

    Cut back face for pocket

  8. Step 8:

    Model pocket face/faces

  9. Step 9:

    In this case there are two planar faces parallel to the front face

  10. Step 10:

    A ruled face connects the rear face with the pocket faces

  11. Step 11:

    Fillets makes smooth transitions

  12. Step 12:

    I had to cut away part of the head to improve the flow of the following surface

  13. Step 13:

    This lofted surface is done in one go and connects the head and hosel

  14. Step 14:

    Closes the surface model and turns into solid geometry

  15. Step 15:

    Cut hole for shaft

  16. Step 16:

    Split into head and ferrule

  17. Step 17:

    Cut grooves in club face

  18. Step 18:

    Cut logo and number and additional ornamentation

  19. Step 19:

    All done. Hope this works for you :-)
