volleyball in Onshape

I wanted to get to know Onshape better and had a look at the split, transform and pattern command.

I repeated this in SolidWorks and it is the same workflow.

  1. Step 1: model one sixth of the surface

    after a basic revolve (I used radius 105) with 90 degrees use planes to split the surface. "delete face" takes care of the corners.

  2. Step 2: divide with split

    divide with planes at 30 degrees. thicken with 3mm then fillet with 2mm.

  3. Step 3: unite, pattern and transform

    transform, rotating 2 bodies 90 degrees

  4. Step 4: ...and again

    do likewise for the missing two parts.

  5. Step 5: watch tutorial on youtube
