In ntroduction You s should now b be familiar wit th creating simple solid pa arts by first cr reating a sket tch (simplified d 2D representation of the e part) ) and then cre eating 3D fea atures using b basic features s such as ext trusion; simila arly you may also use revolution, fillets and c chamfers. In this lesson, we will go ov some fun w ver nctions that c be used to create a m can more comple part and/or ex make e your lives ea asier, and you u will learn ho ow to remove e material fro om your part. .

Se elect "AISI 10 035 Steel (SS)" " under the Steel tree d. Click "Apply", t then "Close" 5 TheUniversityofMichigan MECHENG250F11 CAD Lab 2 IV. Removing Material: Holes 18. There are three primary ways you can create holes a. Create circles in the original extrusion within the boundaries of the square (bad) b. Create an extruded cut and sketch circles of the appropriate size (ok) i. Just because you can design a hole that is 0.12345 in diameter does not meant that you will be able to find a drill in the shop that can create that size c. Use the "Hole Wizard" to create standard sized clearance or tapped holes (great) i. Always use standard size holes if you can ii. A clearance hole allows an appropriately size screw to pass through without interfering iii. A tapped hole is threaded and engages the screw's threads 19. "Hole Wizard" is a powerful function to create standard size holes. Since the axle has clearance hole for a size 2 screw, we should create holes for the same size screw on the arm to fix them together (You can learn more about the drill/tap sizes from: a. Click on the "Hole Wizard" icon in the Feature command ribbon b. Under "Hole Type" i. Hole Type: Countersink 1. Most screws and bolts have heads that act as the handle while they are being installed 2. In most cases, the head has a bigger diameter than the screw and is inevitably left on the outside surface after being screwed in 3. Countersinks and counterbores are additional removal of material which enables the heads of the screws/bolts to rest inside, hence making them flush with the surface 4. Countersinks are used for conical heads (a.k.a. flathead) and counterbores are used for most other types of heads ii. Standard: Ansi Inch iii. Type: Flat Head Screw (100) c. Under "Hole Specifications" i. Size: #2 ii. Fit: Normal 6 Th heUniversity yofMichigan n M MECHENG250F11 CAD D Lab 2 d. Under "End Co ondition" i.

Open up the e file from l last CAD lab.
