Extrude to conical parts

308 Views, 12 Replies

Hello 

 

I have no clue if this can be done. I am creating a fan wheel (see attached). The fan blade needs to be extruded to the inside surface of a 2 piece cone assembly. To make it even more difficult, the inner portion of the blade needs to be cut at an angle so that the extrusion ends at the cones. See attached pdf reference sketch. The result for the flat pattern blade edge should be two parabolic curves. I dont think I am explaining this very well so please reply with questions to clarify

 

Any help on how to start would be greatly appreciated.

 

Best regards

An assembly file (*.iam) is only a list of hyperlinks to the part files (*.ipt) and a record of assembly constraints (and a bit more).

You must include the part files.

I could only attach 3 files. Please advise if you need more detail.

 

Thanks in advance

You can place all files in a single folder.

Right click on the folder and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.

Attach the resulting *.zip file here.

Thanks for the help. Now it seems so obvious. For future reference is it possible to extrude to other parts? In this instance I will need to sketch the cones twice. Is there a workaround?

 

Thanks again

 

Best regards

Use Copy Object. Note that this will be Adaptive. You may want to turn that off.

Sorry to bother. I can split to one cone but is it possible to split to two cones.

 

Best regards

Stitch the surfaces of the other cone(s) to create a quilt and use it as the split tool
