Editing the angle on a body - cone

Hi,

 

I've been given an ipt file of a device from another student and asked to edit the angle of the cone(from 8 to degrees)

but I can't see any way to edit the angle, and I can't just delete the cone as its all attached.

When I tried using push pull to reduce the hight and reduce the angle it shrank the section above, at this point tempted to just make a new one from scratch.

 

Any advice on how to edit gratefully taken!

First if history's not enabled, enable it.

Next create a sketch and revolve to modify the cone. You didn't say if it need to be flatter or steeper but either way create a sketch to either add or remove martial then revolve with either Join or Cut. In the sketch you'll need to project the edge of the existing cone for reference.

Thank you both for your help

 

Here's a copy I'm trying at alter the angle from 8 to 4 degrees to make it flatter

 

I tried making the cone as mentioned but it won't let me cut/join, at least I can't make it!

First create a sketch and use project intersect to get the edges of the existing cone, then add a line at 4°.

Then you have the problem that the centre hole will go though the new cone! So exit the sketch and offset the hole bottom.

Then revolve cut. see attached design with timeline.

Out of curiosity I thought I'd try using draft and that works as well. Made easier as the document origin planes are in the right place and you know the existing angle.

Thank you for all the help! Fingers crossed it won't need another edit but if it does should be easy now! Thank you!
