If so, then just revolve a sketched traingle to create the chamfer toolbody and subtract it from the extruded nut body.

Thanks for your support .Yes this is what I want but my problem is what are the positional dimensions and size dimensions of that triangle...

 

If in that chamfer if chamfer angle is given then I will create but I don't know how to create triangle if the input data of chamfer is radius instead of angle....(I.e I need the positional and size dimensions of that revolved triangle if chamfer radius is given..?)

Thanks for your support...need help..

What ever happened to the old UG Newsletters?  One of those had a "how to model a nut" article, which covered the process.  I have a printed copy, but I don't see the archives to post the link to it.

Hello @DaveK,

 

Normally you should be able to find the newsletter here:

https://solutions.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/

 

And when searching filter on newsletters. But I'm not able to find what you are refering to...

Maybe search on some of the info in the document?

 

Kind regards,

If you've loaded the Machinery Library, just open any one of the Hex Nut models and look at how it was done.  I created some of the original Part Family masters for Hex Nuts, and these original models were later used as "inspiration" when the official library was created so you should be able to find how it was all done.

I've tried the article subject, and the author name, "Hex nut creation tips" by Dan Hulub of Advanced Training Solutions.  Article was on pages 20 and 21.

 

FWIW, the news letters are here:  https://support.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/docs/newsletter.shtml

 

Looking closer, this was actually part of a PLM World newsletter, aka UG Usersgroup at the time, so I scanned and attached it.

If I recall correctly, that was the approach that I used in my original set of Hex Nut Part Families.
