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 4 Creating a Revolve Feature: 4. Click Revolved Boss/Base . 5. Specify the angle of rotation and click OK . – The default angle is 360°, which is right 99+% of the time.
Lecture 5 5 To Create a Revolved Base Feature: 1. Select a sketch plane. 2. Sketch a 2D profile. 3. Sketch a centerline (optional). 4. Revolve the sketch around a sketch line or centerline. Centerline (optional)

Lecture 5 6 Creating a Revolve Feature: 6. The sketch is revolved around the axis of revolution, creating the feature.
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.

Lecture 5 8 Creating a 3 Point Arc: 5. Drag the arc midpoint to establish the radius and direction (convex vs. concave). 6. Click the left mouse button a third time.
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
