Using Inventor 2013/2014 .. how do i cut out the worm case so that the worm can rotate correctly inside..it will be part of a pump (mono)
Still looking for advice on how best to approach the cut.What tools should i use and i shall attempt myself to make the cut.I am new to Inventor so need some guidance on how best to create the cut to suit the worm
