Helical groove in NX9

Hi,

I have an hollow cylinder, OD 150 and ID 100. I have created an helical groove of 2x2 on outer periphery. There is an sharp corner developed at the start and end of helical groove. I would like to apply a small blend on that sharp corner. Let me know which option will help to create blend.

 

Thanks

Yunus

Without seeing a picture of your part, have you tried Edge Blend?

Or face blend?

Hi,

Please find the attached part file "Helical Groove.prt" and "Blend.png". I would like to apply 1.6 mm radius at sharp corner produced by helical groove at start and end of the groove.

Hoping you will do the needful.

 

Thanks,

Yunus

Assuming you want sharp corners in the groove, enable "Preserve Shape" in the swept feature.

 

Extend the helix by +- 1 turn so it breaks out of the end faces

 

edge blend works fine with clean geometry
