Create a Reinforced Vacuum Hose which is a Multi-Body part of a clear hose with a wire molded inside.

  1. Step 1:

    Create a Reinforced Vacuum Hose which is a Multi-Body part of a clear hose with a wire molded inside.

  2. Step 2:

    With the steps provided below, this process creates multiple bodies within a part to model a reinforced hose.
    The following steps will be to:
    • Make the reinforcement wire inside a hose using a coil.
    • Extrude a tube and specify that the extrusion is not merged with the wire component of this part.
    The specifications of the hose: .75” I.D. x 1.125” O.D. and a .020” diameter wire reinforcement inside the hose. Set the material type as PVC on the new part. Start making the reinforced wire of this hose, create a centerline on the top plane and dimension the radius .437”.
    Create a horizontal construction line .437” long, a circle (.020”) on the end of that line and a vertical construction line from origin for the coil operation.

  3. Step 3:

    Start coil command and specify Pitch and Height .

  4. Step 4:

    Completed Coil.

  5. Step 5:

    Create a sketch with 2 circles, the hose I.D. .750” and O.D. 1.125”.

  6. Step 6:

    Select Extrude and select the New Solid button for the Hose Feature.

  7. Step 7:

    Extrusion over the coil feature shown.

  8. Step 8:

    Select Solid 2 (Hose Extrusion) in the Features tree and set the display as Blue (Clear).

  9. Step 9:

    Completed Hose.
