1 Tutorial: Bracket Chapter 3

2 Feature 1 – Extruded Rectangle Center rectangle about origin to allow for use of symmetry later INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

3 Feature 2 – Construction Plane Offset from top surface INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

4 Feature 3 – Extruded Boss INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

5 Feature 3 (continued) We will use the Mirror Entities Command in the sketch for this feature INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

6 Feature 4 – Extruded Boss INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

7 Feature 5 – Extruded Boss (Center Rib) INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

8 Feature 6 – Construction Plane INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

9 Feature 7 - Rib The Rib Tool allows this feature to be created from a single line INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

10 Feature 8 – Mirrored Rib Mirror Tool allows features to be mirrored about a plane/face (centering original sketch allows the Right Plane to be used as the plane of symmetry) Front Plane INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

11 Feature 9 – Extruded Cut INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

12 Feature 9 (cont.) For this sketch, we “wake up” the center mark of a previous feature With Circle Tool active, holding the cursor momentarily over the circular edge causes the center mark to be displayed The center mark can then be snapped to INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

13 Feature 10 – Extruded Cut INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

14 Feature 11 – Linear Pattern Edges of part define pattern directions INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009

15 Design Intent – Symmetry in Modeling Using symmetry is good modeling practice – allows for easy changes later Example: if the two small ribs are to be modified, then changes to one will be reflected in the other If a part has planes of symmetry, always plan your model so that the plane of symmetry coincides with one of the pre-defined planes (in this case, the Front Plane is the symmetry plane of the part) INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MODELING USING SOLIDWORKS 2009
