Application of 3D Sketch in Solid Edge ST9 (with caption and audio narration)

Application of 3D Sketch tool in Solid Edge

Application of 3D Sketch in Solid Edge ST9 (with caption and audio narration)

This partial design has been used in my model 'Bulb Shade (Solid Edge Tutorial)'. I tried to emphasize regarding the use of 3D Arc by 3 Points tool, simultaneously creating surface with the help of 'Bound' command.

 

 

Transcription of the Video

  1. Create a new sketch on XY plane.
  2. Draw the two circles coincident from the part origin.
  3. Apply the desired dimension.
  4. Apply the symmetric constraint on these two lines and give the angular dimension.
  5. Create a 3 Point Arc, between the intersection point of line and circle.
  6. Save the part file.
  7. Create a point H1 on the circle and which lie on the end point of the vertical line.
  8. Create a new Plane 1/2 inch below from XY plane along Z axis.
  9. Create a new sketch on Plane4.
  10. Create a point on Plane4 which is the project of point H1.
  11. In Sketch panel, click on 3D Sketch tool.
  12. In 3D Draw panel, click on 3D Arc by 3 Points tool.
  13. Select two endpoints A & B are on the arc of outer circle, and lie on XY Plane. Next, select point H2 which lies on Plane4 which is the project of point H1. (A, B and H1 are coplanar points and lies on XY Plane).
  14. Exit from the 3D sketch environment.
  15. Go to the Surfacing tab, in the Surfaces panel click on Bounded tool.
  16. Select the 3D Arc and Edge Set of (Sketch1).
  17. Click on finish button to create the surface.
