Drilling with boolean

Recommended Posts

Hello

Can VW to make such drill?

At unfolded from right side, 42 degree

or especially side holes drilled for bayonet?!

(I'm sorry for my English)

If you can draw the positive version of the hole you want cut out, then a Subtract Solid should give you the hole you are looking for.

Is this part going to be made flat and then rolled? Or is it machined from a round tube/bar of some kind?

Hello

Second variant, it will be to make by milling cutter from solid form.

I will prepare 3d model.

And i got model from my colleague. Look at step format(remove stl, leave as pick_up_barrel.stp) in attachment

The STP seems to import fine.

Are you just trying to learn to draw parts like this in VW? Or do you have a need for just this specific part?

If I was going to draw this I would make a two cylinders and subtract the smaller to get the overall shape of the tube.

Depending on what geometry you know I would then make a cutting piece, probably for one side of the cutter head and subtract that from each side.

Create another cylinder or oblong and subtract that to get the bayonet "hooks"

I am not sure what I would do for the rest of the cutout. It depends on what you know about the part.

Sometimes it is easiest to make things similar to how they will really be machined. Other times it is easier to make a positive and subtract it as one piece.

Let us know if you need more help.

Hello Pat

Sorry for delay answer. My colleague and i solved problems by other tools.

Thank you for your tips

Another software tool made tooling path at unfolded, set position in cylinder coordinate system and drill away <- Boolean by driving path of drill

Sometimes it is easiest to make things similar to how they will really be machined. Other times it is easier to make a positive and subtract it as one piece.

Yes, this part will be drill for oil-gas industry by cnc machine or something that.
