Lecture 5 2 Revolve Feature Overview • A Revolve feature is created by rotating a 2D profile sketch around an axis of revolution. • The profile sketch can use a sketch line or a centerline as the axis of revolution. • The profile sketch cannot cross the axis of revolution. Good Good No Good

Lecture 5 3 To Create a Revolve Feature: 1. Select a sketch plane. 2. Sketch a 2D profile. 3. (Optional) Sketch a centerline. – The axis of revolution must be in the sketch with the profile. It cannot be in a separate sketch. – The profile must not cross the centerline. Centerline

Lecture 5 7 Sketching Arcs – 3 Point Arc A 3 Point Arc creates an arc through three points – the start, end and midpoint. To Create a 3 Point Arc: 1. Click 3 Point Arc on the Sketch Tools toolbar. 2. Point to the arc start location and click the left mouse button. 3. Move the pointer to the arc to the end location. 4. Click the left mouse button again.

9 Sketching Arcs – Tangent Arc • The Tangent Arc tool creates an arc that has a smooth transition to an existing sketch entity. • Saves the work of sketching an arc and then manually adding a geometric relation to make it tangent. • Start point of the arc
