Tutorial to make a leaf structure in Solidworks

  1. Step 1:

    Create a new part

  2. Step 2:

    Invoke a sketch on top plane

  3. Step 3:

    Make an arc as shown

  4. Step 4:

    Create a new plane. Insert-> reference geometry-> new plane

  5. Step 5:

    Provide a dimension and click ok.

  6. Step 6:

    Invoke a sketch on the new plane

  7. Step 7:

    Sketch a straight line and at a distance from the arc created in the earlier step as shown in the figure. Exit the sketch.

  8. Step 8:

    Insert->surface->loft->

  9. Step 9:

    select the two sketches to perform a loft feature.

  10. Step 10:

    Invoke a sketch on the front plane.

  11. Step 11:

    Use spline and mirror feature to make a sketch as shown.

  12. Step 12:

    Trim surface

  13. Step 13:

    Use trim tool as the spline. Keep selections as the inside shaded part. or remove selection as the outside part.

  14. Step 14:

    U'll get the leaf structure. Now again invoke a sketch on the front plane.

  15. Step 15:

    Sketch a vertical line passing through the middle of the leaf.

  16. Step 16:

    insert->curve->projected

  17. Step 17:

    Select the sketch and face to project upon.

  18. Step 18:

    insert a new plane parallel to the top plane

  19. Step 19:

    give the dimension of the plane such that its distance is a bit less than the leaf's length

  20. Step 20:

    sketch on plane2

  21. Step 21:

    draw a circle and exit the sketch

  22. Step 22:

    sketch a point on plane1 and exit the sketch

  23. Step 23:

    create a loft surface feature

  24. Step 24:

    select the point and the circle as the profile. Similarly create the rest part of the leaf surface.
