Dressing Up “Using our All-Around Good Looks” IE 1225 Tutorial 3.7 R. Lindeke
Set the Lines at the Complement of the Angles Shown at this step in the tutorial: (86.538 & 83.077 respectively)
While Profiling – Use Computed Angles – Set Lengths for the ‘top-arc’ Note the Construction Elements (circles and lines)
Be careful while working it out – Set the Angles as CONSTRAINTS after profiling (last to be sure)!
Seriously COOL! – But Reverse Direction! Hum … Better save here – too much time is invested!
Making another Circular Pattern: Pick the Pocketed Slot as Object – and Top face of the Pad of the (original) tooth as reference element
Build this sketch – Then Quick Trim to get Pocket Patterns – Pocket up to last – And Mirror about ZX plane
For the “Keyed Hole” – sketch the circle – add a rectangle – constrain it then quick trim the circle inside the rectangle and the rectangle inside the circle!
Build the Slot (draw and constrain a rectangle) – then Pocket it build a ‘Rectangular’ Array with 5x2 elements
After Getting the “Correct” Rectangular Pattern – play around with parameters and see the effect – but be careful – save your part before embarking on this trip!!!
