Help on draft feature

Hi,

I'm training to draft a part in both side with parting surface, but I'm not able. Can someone explain if I'm using a command in a situation not contemplated ?

Hi @cubalibre00,

 

I suspect you just need to use the Stationary and Parting Draft Method and define a Stationary Face.

I've attached the part that now has draft.

"Draft body" would be a more appropriate command if you want to draft both sides at once. The draft command only drafts in a single direction at a time.

 

Edit: correction - it can draft both sides if the "parting face" method is used. (thanks @BenBroad)

Thanks @cowski1, I just re-read the question Smiley Embarassed

 

The Stationary and Parting Draft Method does not offer a "Draft Both Sides" option.

Attached is a zip file containing 2 versions. The first one uses draft body on the model as-is. The second one shows what I think you are after. It uses the draft command; also the cylindrical portion of the model was reordered to make the final result cleaner. In doing so, I eliminated the sketch that created it to get a quick result; if desired, you could recreate the sketch and make the parting object sketch associative to it (similar to the original model).

It's Extrude(2) that's causing the problem.  I can draft both sides if I suppress Extrude(2):

Hi to all,

I can use my solution if I split the body.

Hi to all,

another test...I don't need to split the body, I can use the command, but in two times.
